My beans turned out a little bland but I am certain that it was because I added too much water. I used a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis instead of the green salsa and a slice of turkey bacon. I also used garlic powder, onion powder & flakes, chili powder, & black pepper.
I soaked the beans for about 10 hours before cooking them (draining & rinsing twice). I cooked them on the stove for 7 hours. I will definitely try this recipe again but will be sure to reduce the amount of water I add.
For those whose beans were still a little crunchy after cooking -- make sure to soak them for several hours and drain the water once or twice. Also beans have a shelf life so if they have been in your pantry/cabinet for over a year then it's highly possible that they will not turn out right.
