    Chef Regina V. Smith's Note:

    You would never guess that this recipe uses canned beans. Don't skip the chorizo as it adds a lovely bottom note to the flavour of the dish. Muy facil!

      I was really pleased with the results from this recipe, even though I didn't include every ingredient. I served these flavorful beans over rice, and it was delicious!

      5 Stars, just perfect! Used pork chorizo from a Latin grocer, and indeed it was the key to the perfect spiciness and the agreeably thick sauce. DH also loved it, but this meat and potatoes man requested that some cubed ham steak be added to his next bowl. I thought these beans stood up for themselves. Served with the perfect complement: Spiced Brown Rice with Peanuts #292476. Based on USDA nutritional data, used 1/3 cup of sweet onion as equivalent to 1/2 small onion. Will make this frequently as we seek to increase fiber in our diet, and this was outstanding. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
