We loved this recipe! I am a carnivore but I would be happy having just these beans, no meat, for the entire meal. As it happens I did serve the recipe with 3 very small slices of plain cooked chicken breast but they weren't really needed, Also served with side of arugula salad. This is a repeat recipe Thanks Dreamer for a good one!

This has become one of my semi-regular dishes, especially good for guests and potlucks. I use vegetable broth instead of oil (I freeze leftover broth in ice cube trays and use 1 or 2 instead of oil for sauteing veggies). I use a whole red bell pepper (why not?), 2 jalapenos since they're breeding them to be milder these days (look for ones with white line scarring if you want the hotter ones), double the cumin, allspice, oregano, and black pepper. I also do not use the optional mild green chiles or crushed red pepper. Thanks for posting this recipe!
