A very healthy dish with good flavor. I took cabri729's advice and added 1/4t red pepper flakes with the onion and doubled the garlic. I used pinto beans because that's what was on hand. It turned out very yummy and filling!

I liked it but it was a touch bland, I was looking forward to the kale flavor and there wasn't much there. I think next time (and there will be a next time) I'll try more garlic, less time cooking the kale, and maybe a cup or two of diced smoked ham.
