I'm going to give this recipe 4+ stars, mainly for the lack of direction on prepping the dried beans. The taste of charro beans is very personal, and it varies from region to region. I was leery of 3.5 ounces of jalapeno peppers, so I put in a 4 ounce can of mild chopped green chilies and 1 fresh jalapeno, minced and seeded. This is enough heat for us. Other than that, I followed the recipe ingredients, but I par-boiled my beans and prepared them on the stove top, adding the salt last, and I did not saute the chopped onions, but put them directly into the beans, saving us the extra fat calories. I also added 1 tsp. ground cumin and a few turns of the peppermill. I don't usually add tomatoes to my beans, so this will be a nice change. Thanks, Kim.
