I cut down the spices just a little, and the flavor was good. I had trouble with the texture, though. The water nearly cooked away in the first 1 1/2 hours, and although I added a little more water when I added the tomato paste and seasonings, the beans turned out pasty. Perhaps adding more water would give the beans more of a Ranch style sauce, and it would then be best not to cut the amount of spice.
What a wonderful recipe to use for Burritos. My Brother loves Burritos. I did not use the Tomatoe Paste. However I did use a can of tomatoes. Worked out wonderful and he was very pleased with a better taste of his Burritos. Thank You have a wonderful day. Hugs
i agree nan. these were very spicy and i think the cooking time needs to be adjusted and shortened. i have been working on fixing this one. my beans came out mushy.
