I just loved this recipe ! A warm comfort food dish . This was a great meatless meal ! I served it with some grated cheddar and a spoonful of light sour cream over the top . Fantastic !!

This was SO good! I shared it with the little girl that lives in my building and we both enjoyed it a lot. I used kidney beans instead of pinto (out of comfort - we're used to them). And I also used whole wheat flour instead of white. All in all, a great recipe that I will use again and again. Thanks for sharing!!

This was great for a meatless dinner. Just increased the chili powder to 1teaspoon, subbed fresh garlic and added a frozen chipotle pepper for extra kick, but I think it would be good as written. Definitely will make this again.
