    These were great!<br/>I used 2 seeded jalapeno peppers (I was afraid of it being too spicy) and it had nice hint of spice. Next time I may use 3.<br/><br/>I used 1 pound of minced ham instead of the salt pork.<br/><br/>Gave some to my neighbor who said that they were SO good he wasn't going to share any with his wife.<br/><br/>Very good! Definitely will make these again and the recipe is going into my keeper book!<br/><br/>Nice going Angel! Thank you for sharing!

    delicious! I was a little worried that this was going to be TOO spicy, after looking at all the spices, but the flavors mellowed together very nicely, producing a very savory dish with a pleasant, but not overpowering "kick." In our never-ending quest to eat healthier, I decided to sautee the salt pork until lightly browned, and then poured off almost all the fat (and there was a LOT of fat). I cut the recipe in half, and served it as a side dish to Mean Chef's Steak Tacos, and still had leftovers, although our dinner guests asked for a "doggy bag" so they could enjoy the beans for lunch tomorrow. Very very good dinner, and a definite "keeper"

    Super easy! Just what I was looking for. I didn't soak the beans overnight,I used the standard jumpstart for cooking dried beans.I then drained them and followed recipe and additionalcooking times. These are great with little cheddar cheese on top. I served them with mexican cornbread.
