Beans for Navajo Tacos

I am attending a party this Monday at an amusement park. I am in charge of the meat, cheese, and beans. Here is my thoughts on the beans and I would like some input.

I am going to use 1 lb pinto beans and 1 lb of black beans. I am going to puree the pinto beans and leave the black beans whole. I plan to make a chicken veloute (gravy) enough to add some liquid to the beans. I am going to roast some peppers and I plan to spice this with cumin, chili powder and ????

???? is where you all come in.


Two things make every meal better. Pork Fat and Carbonation. It's that simple.

I like to use epazote in any bean dish. Also, Sauzon Goya powder. When we stay in Mexico, the hotel varies its beans daily, some with bacon, onions, queso. All the restaurants do it differently. I might skip the chili powder and go for dried ancho or some chipotle in adobo.

Maybe some coriander and/or a little allspice? Onion would be good too.
