      Delish! I used dried beans, but cooked them in the crockpot on low while I was at work. I also used canned chopped tomatoes and added a bit extra spices (more cumin, red pepper flakes). The main change is that I totally forgot to add the liquid smoke at the end. I'm sure it would have been lovely. Next time I will remember it for sure. Thanks for posting! Made for the Dec 08 veggie swap.

      This turned out pretty well! I did take the time to use the dried beans and it worked out great. This is really great; full of delicious vegetables. Made for ZWT4 for the South America/Central America Potato Challenge; Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

      I enjoyed this but when using the 'can' method I had trouble with it not absorbing all of the water and boiling dry. Next time I will go with the dried bean method and see if it makes a difference. Made for ZWT4.
