fantastic! was skeptical at first when looking at ingredients (no bacon! don't need it!) i too upped the chili powder and lessened the cinnamon. the recipe says to add sugar, but is not on the ingredients list. i added 1 tbsp of brown. everything boiled down nicely. will be making this for the rest of my life.

Wonderful! I changed the recipe a bit - doubled the amount of beans, increased the chili to 2 teaspoons, put in a whole lemon and dried parsley instead of fresh. I was a bit hesitant about the amount of cinnamon but put it all in anyway - and it was totally worth it. I think one reviewer said that the lemon juice makes this recipe and I would agree - lemon gives a wonderful tangy taste to the beans. Will make this again and again!
