MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 5, 2013

"Your cooking times are a little short. I pre-soak for 24 hours before starting this one. This makes cooking time a little shorter, but not as short as yours.Legumes are my favorite and the reds are best for me, I do however like them all."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2009

"While we like spicy food and the spice combination in this recipe really appealed to us, the beans seems to be lacking the flavor we usually like with our beans."
