Charro Beans

I was in Austin a few weeks ago and had to make my HEB run for some Charro beans. They aren't store brand, but I've not been able to find this specific brand at any of my local grocery stores. So, I stocked up.
I empty the can into a pot and add my usual Mexican blend to it: cumin, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, lime juice, minced garlic and cilantro. Then I let it simmer on low for a long time to develop all those seasonings. SO yummy. I love beans so much that this could be a meal for me, but would be perfect with some Spanish rice and tortilla chips!
