This is really yummy. I served it as a side dish with fish tacos. I can't wait to eat the leftover beans in a burrito with rice and a creamy cilantro dressing. I made beans on the stovetop instead of using canned beans.

What a great way to dress up ordinary beans! I halved this recipe and it was plenty for a family of four. I used veggie broth, to make it a vegetarian bean recipe. Also, I used salsa verde since that is what I already had on hand. Thanks, Sarasota, for another winner!

Wonderful beans! The flavors were great, and it was a very easy dish. I served with Pumpkin Enchiladas, which was a fabulous combination, and I look forward to serving it with other dishes in the future. Thanks for sharing!

This was phenomenal! I even forgot the cilantro and didn't care a bit. Perfect! I used a super spicy salsa...which didn't make my kids happy. I increased the garlic and increased the green chili's. But oh so easy and oh so tasty. An easy go-to for any mexican fare. Definite repeater for us.

Prepared 1/2 recipe last night -- with all ingredients except salsa (had none) -- and used dried cilantro for fresh. Very yummy ! Went well with saffron rice and sauteed scallops. This will be a great side for many dishes. Probably good cold, as well. Thanks for posting, SarasotaCook.

This is so easy and delicious I can't believe I forgot to review it! This has become somewhat of a staple for our Mexican nights! So easy! Saute and toss it in a pot and walk away! Love that I don't have to worry about a specific finishing time! Also, when mixed with Simple Mexican Rice and some cheese and reheated the next day the result is a great burrito stuffing!
