Default Re: beans - from scratch

cumin seems to be the 'identifying' spice for latin american dishes - we like it but in smaller qtys that often used...

thanks for the ideas - we're not 'against' meat, just trying to keep it low(er) fat - so a beef or chicken stock would definitely bring some flavor to the party.

I've used canned beans many times - but I'm finding the dry from scratch does better for texture - canned beans are,,,uhmmm,,,, canned - and sometimes to mush.
and the flavors are better controlled methinks - one doesn't have to overcome the 'canned taste' - seems most canners have a 'stock seasoning' selection of salt+chem lab...
