I served this up with cornbread and collard greens. Thanks for a vegetarian pinto bean recipe!

Excellent flavor and smelled great while cooking. This would be great for a filling for tacos, enchilladas, or burritos. I will reduce the water or increase the amount of dry beans next time as they were a little soupier than I expected.

These were great! I was looking for a recipe that did not have any meat or salt in the ingrediants. I only made a couple of changes. I added 1 cup of chopped onions and used vegetable stock in replacement of the water and the vegetable boullion. I also added about 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper to give it an extra kick! I will definately be making these again! Thank you again!
