I detest beans.

I once had beans that I liked. It was beans with bear. The beans were from my friend's garden and had never been dried. The dish wasn't sweet.

When I want Boston Baked Beans, I buy B&M baked beans with bacon and onion.

For plain beans, I buy Goya they have a good variety and are top quality.

Not to hijack, but this is a cooking forum. So get some dry beans and soak them overnight. Then get out your crock pot. Drain and add chopped onion, chopped pepper, bay leaf and anything you like but no salt. Set on low and when tender drain and add some ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar or molasses, some bacon and what ever else makes you happy and let it go for an other couple hours. Sal.

My favorite Bean dish.

Drunken Beans

1 pound dry pinto beans, soaked overnight, rinsed
2 bottles Mexican Beer, your choice
1 large yellow onion, diced
10 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
4 jalapenos, seeded and fine diced
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Salt to taste

In large sauce pan, add beans, beer and water to cover, bring to boil, cover and simmer 1 hour.

Stir in onions, garlic, jalapenos and chili powder, add more water if needed, it should be a bit soupy. Cover and simmer until beans are tender. Mash one cup of the beans and stir back in. Salt to taste, stir in the cilantro.

Serve hot and use your favorite Mexican toppings, like more chilies, cheese, sour cream, dices tomatoes, black olives, tortilla chips, etc.

Beans, beans, the musical fruit,
The more you eat, the more you toot.
The more you toot, the better you feel.
Then you feel ready for another meal.
