    Very tasty! although i didn't have all the ingredients. I used chili beans inside of pinto. I didn't add the worcestershire sauce. and i didn't have tomato paste so i used a couple tablespoons of ketchup. It was already sweet so i didn't add the sugar. It turned out very well! - 1/1/12

    This was very good. I changed it around a little bit so I didn't have to buy some things. I used dry pinto beans and ground turkey. I cooked it in the slow cooker all day. I also added water to mine so it wasn't so thick. - 8/7/09
