Sunday Home Cooking

Ever since a co-worker brought a luscious pot of spicy pinto beans to a work potluck I’ve been craving them and wanting to make my own. Today I finally had a large chunk of time at home to monitor the 3 hours of cooking these beans need.

I used the ingredients that above co-worker adds to her beans:

Cilantro, garlic, white onion, roma tomatoes, and serrano peppers, plus salt and pepper to taste

I was very pleased with the way they turned out – not quite as good as co-worker’s, but I will perfect them! I plan to make another pot next weekend. They are the perfect lunch, dinner, even breakfast! I didn’t have tortillas at home so I ate them with with some garlic naan I had on hand. A wonderful mixing of cultures – delicious!

After this picture was taken I did add a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese to the top that gave the beans a tang and saltiness that made them that much better.

What did you make this weekend?
