Excellent! We have a gentleman at work that makes these every year. These aren't a match, but close. Will make again!

Oh man, were these ever good... no excellent. The only thing that I did differently was I used pre-cooked bacon so I added an extra 2-3 slices. I am sure had I used the good stuff and cooked it with the veggies the flavor would have been even more yummy but I used what I had. I just took a small dab of oil in the pan and sauteed' the veggies and dumped them in the crock pot which had been going all day with the sliced bacon bits. I used this for a Tex-Mex cookout and everyone raved, even my Hispanic friends who are excellent coks so I know it was good :) Thanks for an excellent recipe!

My husband said "these are restaurant quality!" The only thing I will change is to reduce cilantro by half - it was a little overpowering for me. Otherwise these were perfect, not very spicy at all, just flavorful - I used Corona for the beer and think I will try something a little heavier next time.

I took these beans to a dinner party where the hostess was serving pulled pork tacos, guacamole, salsa, etc. While everyone loved them I found them to be sweet for some reason. Not sure if it was the beer I used, the tomatoes or what. They turn out really pretty though with the peppers ad tomatoes and all. I think you could make these into a main dish by adding cooked chorizo, sausage, leftover pork.

I've never made charro beans, nor have I had them before. This recipe sounded interesting, and boy was I right, awesome beans. The whole family loved them. I've served them with rice and made up in burritos. These are very versatile. Definately a keeper.

My husband loves Charro Beans. I never knew how to make them till I found this recipe. These are the best and may I say better than the ones in the reataurant. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I will be making this again and again.

These are absolutely fabulous. Exactly what I was looking for and much better than any I've had in a restaurant.
