Frijoles Negros Experiencia Cercana a la Muerte

My readers know that last month I made a big pot of pinto beans. Upon coming home for lunch the next day, I was swept away by the excellent smell.

It was a really big pot of beans, and it lasted a while. I put them in burritos, ladled them onto scrambled eggs, covered veggie dogs with them, and even ate them straight. For me, beans are delicious, nutritious, affordable, and environmentally friendly. I believe the world would be a far better place if we replaced Twinkies and Angry Whoppers with big, hot bowls of beans.

Last night I put on a big pot of black beans.

I got up this morning (my day off) to kiss Abby goodbye on her way to work and … mmmmmm. Beans for lunch.

I make my black beans with an onion and some tomatoes from the garden. I cook them overnight, then salt them just before serving them.

  1. “I put them in burritos, ladled them onto scrambled eggs, covered veggie dogs with them, and even ate them straight”

    Upon first reading, I thought this was all in the same meal. (!) Then I realized “a while” must have meant several days. :-)

    “I believe the world would be a far better place if we…”

    That phrase brings up so many ideas for future blog posts… Or one *really* long list of stuff that would make the world a far better place. :-)

  2. I, too, am a lover of beans. I never met a variety I didn’t like, in fact. Ever enjoyed them rinsed and cold, as a salad additive? Also, tip: pour half a bottle of pace’s medium chunky salsa into your red (or really, whatever variety) bean pot for a nutritional boost and delightful flavor kick.
