We are in LOVE with these beans!!!! I doubled the recipe and am glad I did -- we had leftover fajitas, refried beans and rice today for lunch!!! Had I not doubled the recipe, the beans would have all disappeared last night at dinner. Just a note -- at least for us, when doubling the recipe, I think one could cut back a little on the cumin. I just used about 1 1/2 T. and that was perfect for us. And YES -- the lime juice is a MUST!!!! I'm thrilled to have found this recipe.

The lime is the magic ingredient!!! Thank you Kozmic Blues! This is almost exactly the way I make my pintos, but I couldn't find that missing little something. It's the lime. Voila!

We loved these! I was out of cumin, so we used chili powder, and they turned out very good. The lime zest and juice are key in my opinion, they give the beans a nice light and fresh taste. I will never again use the premade canned ones. Thank you very much for the recipe!
