    Chef Lanibobonnie's Note:

    This has been in my family for 50 yrs, originally from a recipe book but we have no clue which one. You can use any type of bean and I enjoy it with all of them but I'm particularly fond of the Mayocoba beans usually found in the Mexican food section (although it is a Peruvian bean). If you use dry beans 1/2 Cup equals a 15 oz can after soaking and cooking. Enjoy

      This came out really good. Before I served this I tasted it and felt like it needed some spices, so I added some ground coriander, cayenne and juice from a lime.
