  • this was very good, I used half pinto beans & half navy beans. Also substituted a bag of Kroger Recipe Beginnings Mirepoix Blend (onion, green pepper & celery) for the fresh onion & celery. One thing tough - it makes way more than 10 1-cup servings! I'd say it was closer to 15-20 1-cup servings! - 10/29/11
