Pretty good! Considering I am the only one who cares for beans in my family, I am excluding my hubby's opinion from my review. While I thought these were tasty, the cook time was a bit off for me. I even soaked my (fresh, brand new) beans overnight - not only to ensure they'd cook in the suggested 2 hour time frame, but also to clean them of any debris and remove any indigestible sugars that contribute to flatulence. I ended up cooking my beans for almost 2 /12 - 3 hours. I had to constantly juggle the heat setting on my stove because my beans were barely simmering on medium-low but bubbling away on medium. I was concerned that all of the liquid would quickly evaporate, even tho I was checking the pot every 10 minutes (and I had to add almost 2 cups water at that). Since I didn't want to be chained to the stove all afternoon, I guess the extra hour had to be the compromise. Cooking hiccup aside, these were mighty tasty and complemented my Tex-Mex pulled pork sandwich nicely. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Terry! :-)
