A bit salty for my taste. Cilantro was quite strong. I added cumin after which was a nice touch. If I made it again I would use half the water, salt & cilanto and add cumin.

Made half the quantity and turned out wonderful. Did not add vinegar, otherwise followed recipe exactly. Huge plus to not have to soak beans.
