Would be really good with some hot sauce or crushed chilies cooked in!

This recipe makes for a great easy dinner. Even picky eaters will love it!

Reminded me on taco nights from my childhood! The ground beef was so flavorful and the warm beans made it extra filling.

Mmmm, I went back for seconds! Add a little hot sauce for an extra kick-- so good!

Easy, fast and tasty!

Easy, fast and tasty!

I don't like kidney beans, do I have to use them? Is there something else I could replace them with, i.e. refried beans? Thanks

As with any recipe, I would think you could substitute almost anything, but I am assuming unless you heat the refried beans by themselves and add separately, all they would do would be absorbed into the liquid thickening it. You need to substitute something that would not break down, otherwise. Black beans, pintos, chickpeas, etc...

Use any can beans that you like (navy, pinto, white beans and black) I wouldn't use a re-fried beans

its good but I would use taco seasoning in the place of the chili powder

Making it for dinner tonight but I know it will be awesome. Has everything we love.
