    Very good bean recipe! Definitely a keeper! We ate some plain, some with rice, and froze some for later. Will be making again!

    I will be trying this tomorrow. All of the reviewers think it is great with 'to taste' modifications. However the rater that put 1 pound of weenies in her recipe for 150 people definitely had more beanie than weenie.

    Great beans! I made it in a pressure cooker. Soaked the beans overnight, added everything in the cooker but only 2 cups of beef stock and cooked it 15 minutes on high. Released pressure slowly. That's all, no fuss.

    This was AWESOME! I have tried many of your recipies and they are all so good! I switched the the pinto beans to red kidney and served over rice. They ate the whole pot. Thanks for your amazing recipies.

    My wife and I love different bean soups so I thought I would give these a try. I made these for a family get together, and they loved them. My wife, being a great cook thought they needed some sugar added. She makes Bar B Q beans all the time so I accepted her criticism. Added 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and it kicked the beans up from very good to assume.
