    Fairly good, although I think I undercooked mine a bit and put a smidge too much cayenne though this isn't the fault of the recipe! They were spicy but bland if that makes any sense! Probably would've been better if I had cooked them longer. Will try again sometime.

    This was great! I didn't have any green peppers but made it otherwise as written. Thank you so much!

    These are really great black beans. I usually just cook mine with garlic and onion and I was looking for another spice variation to change things up a bit. This combination worked well with my stuffed peppers...yum!

    Excellent! I'm trying to stretch my food budget, so I decided to make these beans instead of buying the canned variety. I followed the recipe to the letter and was very pleased with the results. Nicely seasoned, and the pinch of cayenne pepper gave it a little extra kick. I'll be making these again very soon.
