I loved this recipe! I was skeptical at first, assuming it was going to be bland or boring...but nope, I was WRONG. The beans, along with the freshly diced tomatoes and onions were super good. I...

Loved these - just wish I would of used less cilantro. As hard as I try I am not a huge fan of this herb. Next time I will stick to my tastes and I will enjoy this even more. Thanks for this ...
