    Leah's Kitchen's Note:

    Fijoles de Olla simply means pot beans.This recipe uses ingredients more commonly used in the south of Mexico. A delicious and comforting blend of old world and Mexican ingredients. The flavors seem to meld together in a very balanced and satisfying way. It goes great as a side or by itself or in tortillas. I used pinto beans but you can use any beans you like. You can cook it on the stove top or in the crock pot. I find it easier and less distracting to do it in the crock pot. As a final note the chorizo is optional and not a part of the original recipe.enjoy!
