This was good! Mine didn’t turn out this deep dark col­or. I added a lit­tle toma­to past with it. I also used petite chopped toma­toes cause that is what I had and I blend­ed them a lit­tle. I will add more meat next time just because we like things meaty. I also think it needs a lit­tle more kick. Maybe some cumin. I hon­est­ly won­der what it would be like with toma­to soup instead. This is a very good base to play with. I will def­i­nite­ly be doing this one again.


You don’t cook the pota­toes before­hand, cor­rect?? Thanks 🙂


One ques­tion, do you drain the kid­ney beans? Thanks.
