    Yummy, to keep possible gas down we add a bit of baking soda; also at the end I add Lime Zest and diced green chilis. Either way this recipe is great! - 3/20/09

    I used tarragon and basil instead of cilantro. Making it more of a Southern dish instead of Mexican. And used a pressure cooker instead of slow cooker. Otherwise the same. And dang good. - 3/28/17

    We use the crock pot, and my husband grew his own pintos. We added brown rice, but just because we had some leftover on hand. This is such a great food, and low calorie, too! - 1/9/11
