We used to have this for dinner during the summer at the lake. Whoever was cooking would throw it all together in the morning and by dinner time, it was ready. If there were ever any leftovers, they were gone after lunch the next day. Even the 10 year old boys ate it.

Very good! The spices remind me of some sort of Indian flavored chili- my husband said I should put it in a contest. Awesome! Read More

I liked this dish ok. It was nothing spectacular. I only used one large can of beans. I would make this again but not as a main dish because it's not good enough by itself. However I do think it would be much better served as a dip with tortilla chips. Read More

This is a great meal even my anti-vegetable pop tart-fed brother likes it. I added 1 cup of frozen corn for a little more sweetness. Read More

MY family loved this and I was afraid they wouldn't because they are big meat eaters. This actually satisfied them at home and they asked if we could make it when we went on our camping trip. They said it was real rustic like a true cowboy would make.LOL. Silly kids. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I did alter the recipe a little and that is why I am giving it three stars instead of two. I left out the bell pepper and parsley because I didn't have it on hand. I also added a can of corn. Even so it was utterly tastelss. We ate it with chips and cheese and we kept adding salt pepper and tabasco sauce to add some flavor. My husband and I didn't care for it but my kids ate it ok. Maybe adding some bullion and jalapenos might help. I don't know and I probably won't try it again to find out. Read More

This dish was very flavorful and so easy to make! I mashed the kidney beans while they were cooking with a potato masher to thicken it up a bit and I put all the veggies in the food processor till it was a fine chop consistency (my kids don't like lumps too much). Overall excellent flavor that is great over tortilla chips with shredded cheese and sour cream. Thanks for a new quick family dinner! Read More

My husband and I are on a new health kick. This was wonderful. I dislike kidney beans in sooooo many ways but this was really really good. I made exactly as stated. I put in on tortilla chips and a litte "veggie" shredded cheese. When the tortilla chips sofentened it was really good. I served it with baked salmon in virgin olive oil and seasoning. Hubby is getting it for the 3rd time now. Excellet! Read More

I gave this recipe 5 stars because these were some of the best beans I've ever tasted. Delicious! I didn't have tomatoe paste so I used a little ketchup and I served them over brown rice. Even my picky 4 year old who doesn't like beans ate them! Read More
