    Reduced the thyme, subbed in Tony Chacheres for the chili powder and increased garlic to four cloves. I used a red pepper since I didn't have a green one. Wife and I enjoy as a go to dinner, want to try adding andouille sausage. - 11/13/12

    I used instant brown rice, 3 c. chopped fresh tomatoes, and creole seasoning (instead of chili powder), homemade beef stock, and added ground mustard seed.I browned the rice in oil, and added everything but the beans to cook. I put in the beans at the end just to heat. Good w/ cheese or meat on top - 8/20/12
