Spicy red beans to serve over rice or add more water for a tasty bean soup. Delicious with cornbread too.

I really liked these beans. Great flavor and just the right amount of spice for me. I used chorizo for the meat and served it with white rice. Made for PAC 2013. Thanks for sharing.

These beans were very flavorful. The reason I gave it four stars is because it wasn't very spicy (hot) at all. I was expecting it to be spicy...I will spicy it a bit more to our liking. If you're looking for spicy, you may have to add more cayenne pepper. But these beans do have wonderful flavor. Made for Spring PAC 2009
