      I made this night before last. I had never used soaked over night beans. I am lazy and last minute and had always resorted to canned. But this time I planned ahead. While the flavors were wonderful the beans were a little tough. However, upon eating the leftovers the next day for lunch I found that this dish was even better. I heated a bowl for lunch and ended up eating spoonfuls cold out of the plastic container with much enjoyment. I must admit that after tasting the finished product I added a bit chicken boullion powder (two teaspoons) The finished product resulted in an enjoyable meal. However, I must warn that the chicken bacame a disturbing grey color. But it you close your eyes it is worth it.

      We really enjoyed this dish. I did cheat and use canned black beans. I used 2 cans. I wasn't sure if the chicken should be cooked beforehand, and I really prefer shredded chicken to chunks so I roasted a chicken and added the shredded chicken to the recipe at the appropriate time. We also did not have fresh basil so that was eliminated. My husband and I both loved it. We served it with rice. Next day, hubby reheated it and made a wrap out of it with a tortilla. I think the chicken could easily be elimated to make it vegetarian. Rich, hearty comfort food.
