Delicious. Will make again.
This recipe is a real keeper. A great change from most bean approaches. It has a depth of flavors, but really not too spicy. I used an anaheim chile, a small slice of a jalopeno and more adobo and a tbs of dried new mexico chile.

These beans are absolutely amazing! Extremely favorable with great texture. It freezes great! I served these with so many different things. Put them on burgers, in salad, tacos, with steak.... home run!
