A Popeye's is new in our town and I find every excuse to go get the rice and beans! So I found this recipe and immediately set out to make it. Well, I didn't have a 30 oz can of kidney beans, but I did have 15 1/2 oz cans of pink and black beans. Without delay I made the recipe with the pink and black; and I used smokey paprika because that is what I had. I LOVED THEM!!! I have since prepared them with kidney and used different pepper and fat combinations. My favorite is the pink/black bean combo, smokey paprika and the recipe exactly as written. Thank you so much!!!

Very very very good! Very easy and best of all CHEAP to make! I made the beans from dry, not canned, and made this in the crockpot. Thanks for this great recipe!

NOT even close, my friends. I am a very experienced cook and an experienced PRB&R eater, and can tell you: the result of this recipe is not what you're seeking. Too peppery, not "smokY" enough, inadequate mouthfeel.
