Add Chorizo or smokey bacon for some more body. You may cook this same recipe with canned beans or even do an overnight soak. Some will argue that the overnight isn't necessary.

Very good recipe. Since it was a hot day, I made it in my pressure cooker instead of on the stove. Reduced water to 4c to cook the beans. I didn’t have any of the chilies, so I substituted ground Chipotle powder. I definitely will make again.


Great recipe and an easy way to make beans “last minute” if you didn’t have time to soak them overnight. I added all of the optional ingredients which created more depth of flavor. If you use your own stock (instead of the cube), you may need to add salt when the beans have finished cooking. I used Vulcan’s Fire Salt which added a little more kick.
