This was a fabulous recipe. So quick and easy to make. I didn't have green peppers so I used red bell pepper instead and it was delicious!!!

This was really easy and tolerated a fair amount of neglect. I don't remember adding the thyme, so I probably forgot, but I would add it next time. Very good. Even people who usually complain about beans as a side dish gobbled it up.

I liked this but I don't think I'll make it again. I wanted a healthier alternative to refried beans with our Mexican meal. These tasted a little like chili without the meat. I topped mine with cheese and sour cream (there goes healthier! :) My DH did not much care for these and I probably won't make them just for myself.

Good, basic bean recipe. I used a whole can of Ro-Tel Mexican Fiesta tomatoes (which has cilantro and lime) so I left out the thyme and s&p but did everything else as written. These beans were quite spicy, especially if you use a hot chili powder like we do. Good and easy, will make again.

I was sauteeing peppers/onions for fajitas when I remembered this recipe. This quick bean dish had a complex flavor and the thyme gave it a unique taste. I used chunky salsa (Pace) since I was out of tomatoes. Thanks Chris from Kansas, for another great recipe. Roxygirl

It was good I even added zucchini, yum! It was a little too sweet. My children even ate it without complaning.

These were very good. I cut back on the onion and finely chopped them. Used 2 lg. cloves of garlic and fresh diced tomatoes along with the remaining ingredients. I let it simmer for about 30 min. Next time I think I will add a bit more cumin and chili powder plus some diced green chilies. Thanks for posting!
