    I know this will get the scoldings from the self appointed recipe police for adding calories, but cooking the fresh peppers,onions and garlic (2 Xs as much as called for) in tiny bit of evoo adds lots of flavor, then add beans, cliantro and tomatoe sauce with a splash of red wine vinegar - yummy - 8/19/08

    Is it being too pushy to ask comments to be reserved until recipe is tried. Having to wade through comments about how good something sounds does not help anyone to evaluate whether or not to try the recipe. - 2/15/08

    I have to disagree with Lizangelica! The first thing I do after I read a recipe is check the comments. They are very helpful. I think we all know what we will like and dislike, but I find it very interesting to hear how others may have changed the recipe--or if they loved it "as is." - 8/19/08

    My husband thought these were great! We are mexican food lovers and also love a good bean side dish - this was excellent! I put about 1 tbsp of really finely chopped yellow peppers because I don't use green pepper flakes, but that was the only thing I changed... great dish! - 2/18/08
