1 (15.5 ounce) can

This recipe was amazing. I followed and earlier suggestion and used black bean instead and loved it! I also omitted the butter just because it felt unnecessary and it didn't seem to affect the flavor at all! It's savory, rich, but not heavy, and the lime adds a great tangy finish.
I did not care for this recipe.
This tastes wonderful but the recipe calls for one bunch of chard and you actually need two bunches of chard. There are more pinto beans than anything in this recipe. Try two bunches to even out the flavors and a whole package of goat cheese, not just 3 tbsp.
What an interesting recipe! I used fire roasted canned tomatoes instead of fresh and added half a diced onion. For some reason I really wanted jalepenos in this dish so I added 1/2 of a seeded jalepeno, diced. I served this over white jasmine rice with sliced avocado. The avocado was so delicious..the cool rich taste blended so smoothly with the acidic tomatoes and slightly bitter swiss chard. I'd like to try this with mixed beans and fresh mozzarella cheese too. Definitely try this one..It's an unusual but very yummy recipe!
Yum - I was looking for a recipe to use up some stuff from the garden and this was perfect! I didn't have pinto beans on hand, so I used a can of black beans instead. This dish has a lot of flavor and color! I think next time(there will be a next time), I'll double the amount of cooked chard, though, so it's more of a chard recipe than a bean recipe.
This recipe is simple to prepare and tastes great. I used 2 tomatoes instead of one and served it over whole wheat pasta for a really nutritious meal.
I've made this dish a few times and my husband and I love it. We like it best when the recipe is followed exactly. The few times I did not-it was not as good. It is a tasty vitamin powerhouse and a great side dish to just about anything.
Quite delicious - these flavors and textures all go really well together, who wouldv'e guessed?? Very easy and quick to make too..I served this as a side with a simple grilled chicken. I seasoned the chicken breasts with some coriander, tarragon, and a roasted garlic/sesame seed oil - YUM! The spices on the chicken really complemented the earthy flavors in the chard dish...and I added a bit of coriander to the chard also - it was yuuummy :). Next time I'll add more garlic and tomatoes just for my taste, but really this recipe is great as it is. Will become a staple for us, definitely!
