After our chat last night about cilantro and our previous chats about beans and ham hocks, I just naturally began to think you might like to try a bean recipe that is majorly popular here in South Texas.
They are called Borracho (Drunken) Beans.
They get the "drunken" from the use of beer in them although you don't have to use the beer. I am sending you the most common recipe with some of my little changes.
These are a staple at South Texas BBQ's and most Tex Mex places.
I like them as a supper dish served with either corn bread or a nice sourdough to sop up the juices. Hope you try it because not only is it a good way to try cilantro, it's an excellent bean recipe.
Hope you try it and let me know what you think.
Oh, you can also freeze after cooking and personally I think they taste better when you make a big batch of them rather than just a small batch.
You can also pulse them a few times in the food processor or mash with a potato masher to make really good refried beans.
Roll them up in flour tortillas with some shredded cheese and you have bean burritos.
Well, enough of that. Here's the recipe.
