Top Review by PanNan

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.
