I made this recipe just like it said, but I felt it was a bit flavorless. So I added some chicken stock and a couple of chicken bouillon cubes, and it tasted really good. A great recipe to use for the Ten bean mix I bought for my food storage. My husband enjoyed it too. Thank you.

My mother used to make this years ago and I acquired a taste for it. Easily bland for some people, though. However, I doubled everything except the beans and it turned out rather tasty. Our house loved it and ate every bit of it. Only thing though, some people may want to adjust how salty it is by adding their own salt later when it's served. Otherwise, it's delicious!

It was flavorful. I added some more spices and used diced ham.
