Frijoles Charros

Frijoles Charros



2 pounds dried beans, picked over washed and soaked overnight. I used Cranberry beans (pinto beans work great).
1 Tablespoon of salt.
2 Tablespoons Mexican Oregano
Cook for about 2 hours.

1 Tablespoon Lard
8oz diced bacon
15 oz chorizo
1 large onion diced
4 cloves diced garlic
6 diced serrano peppers
2 medium tomatoes

After beans have cooked for 2 hours

Add lard to pan then cook the bacon.
Add chorizo and cook.
Add onion, garlic and peppers cook until soft.
Add tomatoes and heat.

10 to 15 minutes before serving chop up 1 Bunch Cilantro and add to the pot.

Sounds like the way we make black beans and other beans. Cook in water then add sofrito. I like it.

I would never add a whole bunch of cilantro to any pot. I might chop it and serve it on the side or as garnish, but never in the cooked beans.
I ruined a dish once by adding cilantro to the pot. And i did not add that much.

I can't wait to try your recipe PPO.

Is that Mexican oregano you're using? As you know it's entirely apart from other types.

Yes, I buy it that way too along with many other very economical spices. Thanks.

Just a thought....maybe the recipe should specify Mexican oregano?
