    I made this for dinner tonight. I did add extra garlic, which I always do when making a recipe, as we are a family of garlic lovers. We didn't care for the crushed tortilla chips on top. They soaked up the juices and we didn't care for the texture. Next time I will leave them off and adjust the ingredients to give this a little more heat.

    This is an easy way to prepare beans. Baking in the oven infuses the beans slowly with flavor. Made for My Three Chefs event.
