Comments

These are a morning staple at my house. Sometimes we change up the beans and do black beans or whole pinto beans. Great with any othem!

We love this. The kids added bell peppers as one of the vegetables, and potatoes. We added potatoes so that the recipe resembled a tortilla Española.

These are great! I added a little sausage into them and the flavor was fantastic.
