    This was good but if I make Again I will do it as PaulaG did. Too much cumin for me. I didn't have any Liquid Smoke but I think it needs some.

    The recipe was divided in half. I presoaked the beans overnight and then cooked them as directed. The seasonings were added the last 30 minutes of cooking. I decreased the amount of cumin to 2 teaspoons and added 2 teaspoons Epazote. Excellent!
