    Default Beans

    I need a new bean recipe. How 'bout sharing yours.

    Here's mine

    4# of beans, washed, soaked overnight, rinsed, brought to a boil, rinsed again then seasoned with salt and pepper, two jalapenos and either a 2# of bacon or smoked brisket and cooked until tender and left on low simmer in a crock all day so you can just grab a bowl when you're hungry.

If you like it, we can share it, you don't have to give me credit. If you don't, we are allowed to disagree too (but be ready to be challenged, you may be on to something I'm not). That's what makes America great!

    sounds good!
    My advice keep the beens with the bacon add some cilantro, small slices of tomato, and onion.
    extra heat add 1-habanero pepper sliced and afew diced seranos
    and if you really want to add some beer (Boracho beens)

    You Texas types should like this one courtesy of Bobby Flay.

    2 Fire roasted Poblano Peppers
    2 fire roasted tomatoes, pureed
    2 to 3 ounces minced roasted garlic
    4 ounces oil or clarified butter
    3 slices diced bacon
    1 pound ground pork
    5 pounds venison
    2 tablespoons kosher salt
    1 tablespoon white pepper
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    7 tablespoons chile powder
    6 tablespoons chorizo seasoning
    3 tablespoons oregano
    1/4 tablespoon cumin
    1 ramekin chopped onions
    2 ramekin diced green bell pepper
    2 ramekin diced red bell pepper
    1 ramekin diced Anaheim chile
    1 ramekin diced celery
    12 ounces Lone Star Beer
    32 ounces crushed tomatoes
    4 1/2 pints (72 ounces) chicken stock
    1 cup cooked kidney beans
    1 cup cooked black beans
    1 cup cooked pinto beans
    1 ramekin chopped cilantro
    Masa harina
    Feta cheese, for garnish
    Blue tortilla strips, cut thin, fried

    First, fire roast poblano pepper, tomatoes and garlic cloves. Dice garlic, blend tomatoes, peel and slice poblanos and set aside.

    Take a Dutch oven or large skillet and add oil. Heat oil and add in the bacon. Stir in ground pork and cook on high heat for 3 to 5 minutes then add in venison. Add salt to taste, white and black pepper, chile powder, chorizo seasoning, oregano and minced garlic and stir well. Add cumin slowly to your liking. Slowly, slowly add cumin, be careful (powerful stuff). Cook this all real good and stir constantly. When the meat is cooked, add in onions, bell pepper, Anaheim chilies and celery. Deglaze your pan with a 12 ounces Lone Star Beer. Add your blended tomatoes, 2 cans of crushed tomatoes, poblano peppers, chicken stock, beans and cilantro. Let simmer and get a good taste. If you like it hotter, add Serrano peppers or jalapenos. Thicken with masa harina. Serve in a large bowl with feta cheese and fried corn tortilla strips in center. Accompany with crackers, cornbread and ice cold Lone Star (If you are not at work that is.)

    Yield: 10 to 15 servings
    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cooking Time: 40 minutes

    Hey Mongo

    remember to put a notched stick in the pot while cooking. this will let the farts out so you will produce less gas. or only cook 239 beans cause any number over that the beans will be two-farty. one 1 12 ounce coke soda will also make the beans less gassy.

    Come to the DC Chili Cookoff festival next year.

    You just missed it.

    The GoGo's played too. But they are too young for you right?

    Hey grit,

    thanks for the memories. I used to try to hit the cook off every chance I got. The one year Kansas did a reunion and it was great. Hang out there all day and hit Winston's and Crazy Horse in Georgetown that night. Oh what it was like to be young, crazy, and a marine. lol

    Allow me to put a twist on Mark 440's post. This is how I heard it:

    Beans, Beans, the magical fruit, the more ya eat, the more ya toot. The more ya toot, the better ya feel, so eat baked beans at every meal!!!

    or here's another one:
    Baked beans are good for your heart; the more ya eat 'em, the more ya fart!



    Allright guys, I'm done. Sorry for the outbreak in potty humor!

    Come to the DC Chili Cookoff festival next year.

    Is it open to anyone? If so, I'd probably win

    When is it?

    The GoGo's played too. But they are too young for you right?

    The GoGo's too young for the kid? Come on. I used to have a thing for Belinda Carlisle (I think she's older than me) - man, she made my motor turn. Started to throw my drawers up on the stage one night.

    They'll be at Billy Bobs next week if you're in the 'hood.

    WOOHOO! Sounds good, but it might be a bit
    on the vicious side around there later on
    that night!

    (I wonder if dumping a measure of Beano (sp?) in it might help that out?) Hmmm.....

    Here's an interesting cold bean salsa. This recipe is sweet and mild, but I'm sure you all know how to doctor it up the way you like Serve with those small white Tostitos. It makes a pretty good size batch. I've never been a big bean fan, and I don't like those three-bean salads, so I was reluctant to try this. I ended up eating more than my fair share. Let me know what you think.

    Texas Caviar

    ½ cup Cider Vinegar
    ½ cup Vegetable Oil
    ¾ to 1 cup Sugar
    ½ teaspoon Salt
    ½ teaspoon Pepper

    Add
    1 can Southwest style Black Beans with Jalapenos and Cumin - drained
    1 can Pinto Beans - drained
    1 can Black Eyed Peas - drained
    1 can Baby or White Corn - drained
    1 can Stewed Tomatoes with Jalepenos - drained and chopped
    3-4 stalks Celery chopped
    1 small Red Onion chopped
    half of Green Pepper chopped
    Add Chili Powder to taste
