My husband and I thought this recipe was great! We only made a few modifications. First, for those who thought the beans were too bland, there should always be some sort of fat added to dry beans when cooking. It's very important to the texture and flavor. I added four slices of smoked, thick-cut bacon and then fished them out before using my immersion blender to blend up some of the beans just before serving. I also added about a teaspoon of mustard powder, a tablespoon of onion flakes, and a half-teaspoon of paprika. I didn't have any fresh jalepenos, so I used pickled (hot), and they turned out great! It was somewhat spicy, which we enjoy, but I imagine cutting back the cayenne and jalepenos would remedy that. I also added about a half-cup of sour cream when blending (just slightly, for texture and consistency) at the end. Serve with buttermilk cornbread, some shredded jack, and pico de gallo, and it's WAY better than chili! This recipe is a definite keeper at our house!
