Love this recipe! Have made it twice in the last couple weeks. the changes made were chicken broth instead of water, small jar of salsa in lieu of tomatoes. Soaked beans over night. No o. Added water as needed. Chopped up a small Turkey Ham. Wonderful! Great as a dinner with a salad or a side dish. Thanks

This was easy to make and delicious, and I am certain I will be making again. I made the recipe exactly as written, except using a can of diced no-added-salt tomatoes. Thank you rnneal.

These are very good. The only thing I did differently is to use lard instead of vegetable oil. (I know, I know....but once in a while you just have to go the distance for great taste!) Hubby had a big bowl of these topped with cheese and pickled jalapenos. He loved them. Thanks for a nice recipe.

Never add salt to beans until they are done or almost done. Salt will prolong the cooking time. FYI To me, 'done' is when you can hole 1 cool bean between your thumb and forefinger and it will collapse totally when you squeeze it. Or you can use a spoon or anything that is flat .... key is there should be little or NO resistance when you push down on bean. You can eat one as well after it's cool .... you should feel NO hardness. But, please leave off the salt until beans are done or very close to being done. NOTE: If you want to use salt, use it in water you soak beans in overnight or for a few hours. Then be sure to rinse the beans well before cooking. Some add baking soda as well in the overnight soak. And doing a few minutes in a pressure cooker will reduce total cooking time as well.

This is a good recipe with a only couple of small changes/additions. I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and I added a tablespoon of cumin and chili powder for the last hour of cooking.

I cooked for 2 hours and the beans got pretty soft.
