I was told this ones a keeper. I did use a 19oz can of pintos instead of the dried. I used more onion then called for and a little bit more chili and cumin powder. I topped it with all the toppings listed plus a bit of sour cream...yummy! Kyle cleaned his plate and Ken had seconds.

I got it in late Gus, so I cooked it on high the whole time for about 4 1/2 to 5 hours.
