    I was prepared to hate this - thought I would give it a go & how surprised am I.... Super tasty I did use chicken stock instead of the extra water & home smoked bacon - for a girl that loves her cream & butter this took me by surprise - super tasty - THANK YOU.... I suppose that when you really think that this is the national dish of Brazil & millions love it ... Should have been a slight indication on just how tasty it is! PS.  I did cook this for nearlly an hour as my beans were still uncooked.
