    "Try actual red beans instead of kidney beans. Red beans are a little smaller and, I think, taste a little better in this recipe."

    "Having made this recipe, I can say the lack of liquids was probably no mistake (but when to add the beans is definitely missing). I, however, was worried and added tomato sauce and water to be safe. What I ended up with was a watery, soupy mess. After draining most of the liquid, it was still delicious but want to try it to the recipe next time!"

    "Where are the beans added? And no liquid?"
