    Pretty darn good for mostly canned ingredients, but quick. I used cooked real pork bacon.

    These were fantastic. I served them with Recipe #185779 and steamed brown rice. DH love this one too. It is a new favorite around here. Thanks !

    Super-easy and super-tasty. Great way to prepare some last-minute Borracho Beans that usually require soaking pinto beans overnight.

    Very good flavor to go with Mexican meals. I used a 40 ounce and a 15 ounce can of beans, both of which I drained but did not rinse. I used some dried onions instead of the frozen. Used all the other ingredients as listed in the recipe. I used the whole bottle of beer, but also simmered this for several hours which reduced the beer to a thick flavorful sauce. Great recipe for a crowd!
