With all the back and forth over the addition of water to the recipe I honestly wasn't very comfortable with it. Most reviews seemed to indicate the water should be left out and that it was possibly only meant for soaking the beans and left in the recipe by mistake. Others said there was no need for the water, but I should add some broth. I dropped the water but did use a can of chicken broth, however the whole time I was wondering if I was making a mistake in not cooking the beans first. I don't see how canned beans could be substituted for raw(soaked) beans when canned beans are cleary fully cooked. In the end, the beans came out ok, but even after cooking longer than instructed the beans were tougher than they should be. I told myself, and the other eaters(heh) that it was just the way black beans were eaten. Anyway, the beans were rather easy to make and they were really good over rice. If I make these again I might try some canned beans to see the difference in texture.
