Returning from surgery is taking a bit longer than expected. I am still not cooking, but I do have a few recipes in back-log to write about.
If you read this blog you know I love beans and am always looking for a new way to cook them
Well this was new because unlike the others I usually make there is no beer to simmer these beans to a saucy oblivion. The recipe called for canned pintos or pinquintos but I always have dried pinquintos on hand (haven't ever seen them canned here) so I cooked them the day before. I also cut back on the bacon and onion (still there was more than enough onion) and upped the garlic. What you have is a perfectly lovely bean dish. Not as "exciting" as those with the beer and hot chiles, but a nice dish just the same. We had them with grilled chicken and a cucumebr salad and they made for a nice late summer emal.
