Sooo good! This was my first time cooking dried beans. I don't even really like beans all that much! But these were fantastic! I omitted the bacon grease, and they were plenty flavorful enough! I let a lot of the water cook out so they weren't so "soupy."

Oh, these beans were so good! Made them vegetarian by omitting the bacon grease, and they still tasted fantastic. Thank you! Made for ZWT4 - Los Jefes de la Cocina!

First, I doubled the recipe, and cooked the beans in a crockpot for 8 hours on high. I used ingredients listed, including 3 cups of water per cup of beans. 4 cups of beans & 12 cups of water. The beans were great. Nice soupy thickness, great flavor. Family loved them. Easy recipe. Thank You. Made for ZWT 4 The Mamma Mias!

Excellent! I can serve a little bacon grease with the beans and get away with it in DH diet. Thanks for posting! Great great recipe for flavor and if someone wants it spicier all they have to do is add the hot peppers.

These were good. I think next time I'll add more spice and give it some zing. Thanks for posting!

Loved em! Very authentic taste. I wasn't sure about the bell pepper, but it did add great flavor. We make alot of Mexican food, so I will definitely be using this recipe again.
