I am enjoying a love affair with black turtle beans and cooked up this tasty, colorful, satisfying, little number tonight. In the freezer, I had a batch of Becky Fenters' cooked black beans (recipe #22162), but you can use canned beans if you have them on hand. This recipe is very versatile. You can cook the pancakes well ahead of time, and store them in the freezer. Alternatively, you can serve the chilli beef 'n' black beans on heated tortillas or freshly cooked, puff parathas, as I did tonight. Whichever you choose, it is just lovely with lots of chopped cilantro and sour cream on top! Preparation and cook time does not include making pancakes.
