I was very happy to see that we had all the ingredients. I'm trying to get more legumes into our diet. This recipe was easy and we were both very pleased with the taste. This is a going to be a regular. We got six servings out of this. Thanks for posting!

I thought it was good flavor. I had a bag of pintos I really wanted to use up, so this was an excellent way, and a healthy recipe as well.

Opt for the lower end of the cooking scale. The recipe turned out fairly dry when I cooked it for the 8 hours.
