      Made this for one of my Pick a Chef recipes for Spring 09. It was really easy and very tasty. I can't find my blender, I used my Pampered Chef chopper to " puree" an amount of the beans and left the rest whole. I did reduce the oil, using evoo. I used Tabasco sauce in place of the chilies. Adding chicken bouillon with the water to thin to desired consistency worked well and no additional salt was required. Just a personal preference, I might increase the tomato and onion mixture next time and throw in some chopped bell peppers too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. = )
