      These were some kicky beanies, lol! Great (and super-simple) way to dress up canned pintos. I used some smoked serrano chile powder for this. BTW, these made awesome refrieds, too -- spicy and so creamy. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8

      Great charro beans! Fairly spicy with a nice texture. I did drain my beans before adding the water and they came out great. Enjoyed these - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

      Yum! I don't know that we've ever had EPL in Washington, so I've never tried the original. This however, was wonderful, and very easy to make. The only change I might consider is to add some garlic and onion, both of which complement beans beautifully. Made for ZWT8.
