I made this recipe using Frijoles De La Olla Tradicional (Home Cooked Beans) for our Christmas Eve dinner. I almost always serve homemade tamales, rice, beans, etc. for Christmas Eve and this will be my go-to recipe for charro beans from now on. Sure, they take a while to cook, but they are worth the effort. I followed the directions exactly and received so many compliments from my family. Delicious! Thank you Witch Doctor for posting!
