  1. Great recipe. I added 4 slices of bacon, since it was the main course, and served it more in a bowl than a side dish. With corn bread it was a great supper. The cooking times were perfect, especially when your trying to serve fresh baked bread with it.
     
  2. Good pot o'beans. I didn't do the 4 peppers, just used one very hot jalapeno. Corn bread was essential and the tomato was new for me in beans - I don't usually add tomato. It was a nice touch.
     
  3. These beans are really good, but I used a can of Rotel tomatoes and chilies instead and a couple of minced garlic gloves. I cooked it all day in the crockpot and it was the main part of a wonderful meal in the evening after work!
     
  4. I took this to an office potluck and it was enjoyed by everyone. Cooking the beans by these directions worked great for me (I usually have problems with beans). The flavor was good and this made a nice side dish.
