  1. This recipe came out fantastic! Everybody loved it. I served it with fresh corn tortillas. I used fresh black beans (pre-cooked them for 10 minutes) and real peeled tomatoes (I didn’t have canned). Because I didn’t have salsa, I almost doubled the spices. Leftovers were good the next day. Thank you!!
