Very Yummy! We melted cheddar cheese over it and served it with Tortilla chips on Taco night!

These were good on their own, but absolutely excellent when used as a wet burrito filling--SO much better than the canned! I tried to lower the sodium content by cooking some dry pinto beans the night before. I'm still not sure if I got the conversion from canned to dry correct in terms of bean quantity.
