Beans beans, the musical fruit
The more you eat
The more you toot
the more you toot
the better you feel
so eat your beans
at every meal

Who here likes beans?

Boston baked beans
Beans & franks
Cowboy beans
Pork & beans
Butter beans
Lima beans
Fava beans
Anasazi beans
Black beans
Red Beans
Kidney Beans
Great Northern Beans
White beans
Navy beans
Black Eyed Peas
Pinto beans

So many beans, so little time.

I love beans! There's so many different things you can do with them, and whipping up a "pot-o-beans" is always a fun and tasty treat. Bean soup is always a hit (bean and ham hocks). Plus you get to smell them all day as they cooks! A nice hearty navy bean soup and grilled cheeses...YUM!

A super simple and hearty weeknight dinner I make when there's no time is to take a can of Pork & beans, a can of Great Northern beans and some sliced Oscar Meyer franks along with some sliced onion. I mix all that together and add some ketchup. BOOM...delicious hearty supper!

What kind of beans do you like?

Ever try Charro Beans? If you haven't you should!

Also Dried beans are cheap and along with rice are great foods to stock up on for SHTF scenario's.




INGREDIENTS
1 lb bag of pinto beans (wash and pre-soaked work best)
1 lb chopped bacon
1 onion
3 to 4 roma tomatoes
1 jalapeno (remove seeds and veins for less spice)
2 cloves garlic
1 chicken tomato flavored Knorr bullion cube (optional)
salt to taste (after beans are cooked)

TIPS
*Check beans for pebbles or bad beans
*Presoak in cool water for at least 2 hours
*Do not use water beans soaked in
*add salt after beans are cooked
*Boil on a medium heat

My favorite is what we call "soup beans" down south. I think it's just white beans, hamhock and bacon, and a little bit of sugar. Serve with cornbread.

Amazing when it's cold outside.

Looks great!

Is the bacon cooked first, or do you just add it raw?

You beat me to it. We love our frijoles charros. Big difference in our recipe, though, is that right at the end - maybe 15 minutes before taking them off the heat - we throw in a big bunch of chopped cilantro.

Then, if you want to go full Mexican, squeeze fresh lemons or limes into the bowl after you serve them.

Also, reducing the water and adding in a quantity of beer gives you frijoles borrachos.

I make a mean pot of Anasazi beans (might even make some tonight).

Anasazi beans have a natural smoky flavor to them so you don't really have to do much other than add some smoked ham hocks and some green chiles (I use Hatch).

I've got a great way of soaking beans too. I just put them in the pressure cooker with enough water to cover and pressure cook them for 3 minutes (three minutes of pressure after the pot seals). Then discard the water and dump the beans in the pot you're going to cook them in.

As for spices, I usually add some chile powder and some cayenne pepper and some sliced onions. I do not add cumin though because then it starts tasting like chili, and it masks the great flavor of the Anasazi beans.

I cook for about 6 hours on low in a dutch oven or crock pot.

ETA - You can add about any other meat to this also (in addition to the smoked ham hocks). I've got a freezer full of pheasants so I'll usually throw in a pheasant also. Absolutely delicious! Some chicken pieces or a Cornish game hen works also.

Fava bean. With a nice Chianti

I love beans.

Lentils and split peas too.
Great soups that stick the ribs and warm the soul.

Hannibal Lecter, is that you?? (j/k)

Yes, it appears I did in fact leave out lentils and split peas from my list. Excellent additions.

Love me some lamb and lentil soup/stew!! Oh man, how could I leave that out???

That reminds me!! I need to call that guy about some lamb. Might have to do that today even!

Hmmmm...I might have to try that. I need to go get another jug of Sriracha sauce anyway, mine is about out.

I've even been known to make a bean sammich from time to time for lunch.

Take some cold beans and spread them on a slice of bread. Insta-sammich! Throw a thin slice of onion and a slice of Colby cheese...Oh man!

Over in Asia they used to serve cold beans for breakfast at a lot of places. It was like pork & beans (minus the pork), basically just tomato-ey beans. Served with scrambled eggs.

So breakfast, lunch and dinner can be pretty well covered by beans. I wonder if there's a bean dessert?

Red bean ice cream. Or a steamed red bean bun with a red bean sweet paste filling. Yummy!
