What a great multi-purpose recipe!!! While I have a pressure cooker, I opted to make these in the crock pot today, taking some others advice about some shortcuts. I used 2 cans of black beans, one can of petite diced tomatoes (drained), and I sauted the onion, carrot and garlic in a little of the bacon grease. I added a few drops of Louisiana hot sauce, and a drop of liquid smoke, in addition to about 1/4 tsp of ancho chili powder, and a little Arizona Dreaming spice from Penzey's.
It smells and tastes wonderful! I could easily add a little chicken and cheese and make this into a burrito, or just roll this into a tortilla by itself. I'm actually considering eating some of it with chips this afternoon. And that's all above just being a wonderful side dish with something else. A very worthwhile dish!!
Additional sidenote - if you have the time, the depth of flavor is fabulous if you cook in cast iron rather than the crock pot -- probably closer to that of the pressure cooker version. Still probably one of my favorite recipes this year!
