    Oh, man! This was so good! I made it into a quesadilla because the only tortillas I had on-hand were quite large. I topped it with tomatoes and a bit of low fat yogurt that had taco seasoning mixed in.

    I’m only giving it 4 stars, though, because while I love a cook who isn’t afraid of seasonings, I felt this was too much. I only used about 2/3 of the seasoning and the beans were much too salty, but that’s just a personal preference. We cut way back on our salt a long time ago so most recipes are too salty for us these days. But even with using 2/3 of the seasoning, the beans were heavily coated so in general, this is just too much.
