After reading the other reviews, I was able to collaborate a few shortcuts that saved me valuable time and still ended up with a result myself & my family loved! Instead of cooking the beans from scratch, I used two large cans of pinto beans (same cost; no prep). For the tomatoes, I used one regular can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos (my family thanked me for not making it 'too' spicy; the canned tomatoes had just the right amount of jalapenos). Make sure that you finely chop the onions and cilantro, this way they don't detract from the main ingredient. I also added a 1/2 tsp. cumin & a 1/2 tsp. chili powder. Once all the main ingredients were mixed, I brought it to a boil, covered and then let it simmer for an hour. Also, I ended up adding only 1/2 the beer. Other than that, I followed the recipe as close as possible. It was the perfect side dish to our grilled fish tacos. Wonderful, simple and delicious! Thank you for sharing it!
