    I used fresh beans instead of canned and it worked equally well, just needed to leave a little bit of moisture in the pot for cooking. I mixed in some cilantro with the onion and garlic and agian after for a great flavor. Also used tabasco sauce instead of cayenne pepper, still very good. - 4/9/10

    I love black beans and this was great. I added some brown rice to boost up the protein and had it with a salad. What a meal! - 5/16/09

  • Just made these, but I had to make them without the onion, as I didn't have one. They were still awesome! Can't wait to make them again WITH the onion! - 1/6/10
