MexicoReview by MitchMy recent trip to Mexico I lived in a Mexico women's home. Laura cooked for me a couple times. Beans were part of each meal. I asked what the beans were...pinto I asked...no, peruano she wrote. cooked with onion, garlic. blended, can be froze until use. then cooked with oil and one whole serrano pepper for a little heat. she showed me to take a knife and poke the pepper a few times so it doesn't "blow up". hmmm, what a special time in a magical country with wonderful Mexican people.
Good salad and stew beanReview by AZRetireeI went looking for these after I saw a recipe in Edible Baja. These are excellent cooked and mixed with chopped parsley, green onions and an onion/dijon vinaigrette dressing. Yum! Also good in a veggie stew.
Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot
- First, sort beans for any foreign matter and then rinse. Some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking beans in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
- After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
- Next, place beans in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean.
- Alternatively, some cooks prefer to use crock pot techniques.
- Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans first.
Yield — 1 cup weighs about 1/2 pound. 2 cups of dry beans equals about 4-5 cups cooked beans.
