      I'm not sure what to say here. This is no reflection on Juenessa. The recipe is fine. Just not sure my tastes are liking it. Hubby loves beans and thought he'd like it, not so much. I only used 1/8 t cinnamon and wish I hadn't used it at all. Needs lots of salt, but then I used home-cooked beans instead of canned. Thinking we might not waste it all if I covered it with melted cheese and dipped chips in it. Saw this recipe on Foodnetwork and it got rave reviews, so I'm not giving stars. Seems lots of folks really like it. Just not for us.

      Have made this several times. People are always interested in the flavors. An inexpensive dip as well. Thanks.

      I have now made this so many times and it never fails to be good. I lighten up on the cinnamon (not fans!) but keep everything else the same mostly (add pinch more cumin and coriander) - it is better served while still slightly warm.
