This is a really great bean dish!!!! The beautiful anasazi beans sort of turned pink so I wish I had taken their picture before I cooked them but that's o.k., I'll buy more!! The flavor was very unique and delicious with these spices and the sun-dried tomatoes and chiles!! I used sun-dried tomatoes in flavored oil that I set out on a paper towel before adding to the beans. Will definitely make this dish again, thanks for posting!!!
