    Chef PotPie's Note:

    These beans cook down and creat a thick, rich sauce. Good to serve over rice or arepas. From Cooking Light.

      I like the undertone flavor the red pepper gave the beans. I made as written and don't think I'd change anything. I'm going to use mine wrapped in tortillas tonight. Made for ZWT - Central & South America

      I would also add additional seasonings as the beans were only mildly seasoned as the recipe is written. Very simple to make, as promised.

      Very east and tasty. I may increase the seasonings a bit next time (personal preference). The beans were served over brown rice. Made for ZWT4 P.S. I've just had the leftovers for dinner and these beans are even better the next day.
