This recipe was indeed easy to make. To add a little extra zing I used a dash of cumin and hot sauce in it. It complimented Diana Neal's Taco Dorado's #12833 well.

This was the crowning touch to a dinner of chili rellenos and Spanish rice. I was looking for a easy canned bean reicpe without the bacon or lard added. Thanks for a good recipe!

Great! The only thing I did different was to cook 2/3 cup of dry beans per the directions on the bag, and use them instead of a can of beans. Otherwise, followed the recipe, and it turned out fantastic. Thanks.
