When I tasted the recipe just after adding the tomatoes and beans, I thought that the tomato flavor was too strong. But after it had cooked for five minutes, the spice flavors were absorbed and the tomato flavor was just right for my taste. I'll definitely make this again. It is very easy and takes almost no preparation time.
Yummy, though the crushed tomatoes dominated the taste much more than I expected. I'd like to try this with a smaller can of diced tomatoes, rather than the larger can of crushed, so that the other flavors can shine -- I tripled the spices and the sauce still tasted more of tomatoes than I'd prefer.
Very easy and cheap to make, very filling and delicious too!
This was superb! I used cinnamon instead of allspice (didn't have any) and actually doubled the spice to taste. A delicious mixture enjoyed by all the family. Thanks for posting!
