Though this smelled wonderful while it was simmering the end result was bland. I am not overly creative with spices, but tried adding chili pepper, ground black pepper and hot sauce. Still bland. I have achieved the same results with two cans of refried beans, one can of pinto beans and some similar spices. Not yucky, just a lot of work and mess for not a lot of flavor.
