    Kendra*'s Note:

    I looked all over for a recipe for black beans that included my favorite ingredients. When I couldn't find one, I started experimenting. These have become one of our favorite side dishes with Mexican meals. The lime juice adds a real tang to the recipe.

      THANKS for a great recipe!! I didn't add the bacon nor jalapeno pepper but I do use the bacon grease. I am sure they would be great in it. I serve this with taco's and I think it would be too much with those in it. I do reduce the tomato's and onion as well but other than that, this is an AWESOME recipe. The spices make it perfect! THANKS so much for posting!!

      This was a nice side dish to go with tacos for dinner. An easy way to add favor to a can of back beans.

      This was just ok for me, but my family really liked it. They all gave it a thumbs up, although I would have rated it as a 2... so I gave it a four, since there are 4 of them, and one of me. LOL I am not sure what was missing for me, but it just wasnt what I was hoping it would be. I will more than likely make it again, however, because my family will eat it! :)
