    AmyZoe's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen. I purchased some peruano beans (also called mayocoba beans) and wasn't sure what to do with them and found this recipe online. Peruano beans can be used any time navy beans are used and are from Mexico. This is a nice and spicy pot of beans that you can throw inside of a burrito or just eat plain. I added extra jalapenos and used red onion instead of yellow (I did not change the recipe--only how I made it). I also used rum in place of tequila because it's what I had. Very tasty! Thank you Rick Bayless!
