The best charro beans I have ever had was in Midland Texas at Don Anitos, this recipe must be the same, is wonderful. The only change we made was 1 whole bunch of cilentro, rather than 1/2 bunch.
There were wonderful....restaurant quality...only better. I soaked them overnight, and then cooked them in the crockpot. Great flavor...just the right amount of "zip" Thanks for sharing!
Delicious every time! When I do use the beer I find that a dark beer works best. For the kids I omit the beer and cut the onions, bell pepper, and jalapeno large enough to remove before serving. As a healthier option I also use substitutes like turkey bacon, turkey franks, and sea salt. I also love eating it in a bowl as a soup with a rolled up yummy warm corn tortilla. Brings back fond memories as a child;)
We make this recipe nearly every week. The only difference is that after the beans are done, I'll pan fry the whole lot and mash into refried beans. Served on a fresh tortilla with a touch of shaved cheese makes one incredible breakfast taco! Yum!
I try alot of Charro Bean recipes and this is definitely a keeper. I didn't really change anything except for adding more "spicy seasonings" (I live in south Texas, so we like everything spicy!!) Just a hint for anyone serving this for a cookout or company -- cook ahead of time as directed -- put in crockpot and it can stay for endless hours with no taste compromised -- thanks Mille
We enjoyed this type of bean recipe frequently when we lived in Austin, TX, and this recipe did not disappoint! I added 12 oz. Smoked Turkey Sausage, diced, and served the bean over brown rice as a complete meal. It was VERY yummy!
Very good flavors. I used 2 Anaheim chilies in place of green pepper but otherwise as written. Good with Roasted pork enchiladas.
Great recipe. RIP Miller.
This is classic charro beans! I had to make a few small adjustments for our tastes, and what I had available, but we just loved it!
I made this earlier in the week. I skipped the beer, and jalapenos, since I didn't have any. I added a couple of shakes of crushed red pepper instead, and these were wonderful! Thank you!
