    Great recipe. However, this is a lot of beans. I use 1/2 lb of beans. Also, I like my garlic, so I use 4 clove, 6 scallions and the whole bunch of cilantro. Then I top if off with avocado and tomatoes. It is a wonderful meal.

    This recipe is great! We loved it. We are trying to have one meatless meal each week to save money and the environment and this is a new family favorite.

    We made these because we received some beets from our local CSA and didn't know what to do with them. This recipe was certainly yummy! The lime juice really adds something.
