    You might survive or thrive at our house. Especially if you also like cruciferous vegetables, tubers, and roots. Warning. There'd be dairy and some meat too if you stayed a while.

    Would love to see a pic. Is it a soup consistency or more of a thicker stew type consistency?

    Depends on the amount of broth used, it's up to you...

    If You leave it it the crockpot for a while it will thicken up some on its own *the rice)...

    Sounds good, but needs more jalapeños and garlic. :)

    I'm making a variant of your recipe (Left out the rice. No cilantro in the fridge. Chopped up some green onion to sprinkle when it's in the bowls. No pinto beans, so I used red kidney instead. Chicken broth instead of vegetable.) for supper. I'll report back.

    Do you just throw all of this in the crockpot for awhile?

    Sounds great, but too many carbs for my diet.

    Niiice!

    But needs crushed garlic. (Volume depends on how much you've given up on dating, and/or how much you can be sure your spouse loves/tolerates you, and/or how much room you need on city transit, etc.)

    Also good stuff to add is ham or bacon. I don't eat a lot of either of these, but they go great in this dish.

    A splash or two of hoppy beer helps, too.

    Serve over blue corn chips, garnish with plain yogurt and maybe some shredded cheddar or Mexican cheeses.

    Hog the pot and for days, people will give you all the room you need at home, too.

    Well, Ms. darkwaters judged it to be "tasty and nutritious". Perfect for a cold winter's night with way too much snow on the ground. . The next time I make it, I think I'll add jumbo shrimp for a Nawlins vibe.

    +1 on having some pork fat in there. I’d use a ham hock or part of one.

    But your recipe says “cooked beans”, so I guess the fat might already be in there:)
