    Beer is a VERY important ingredient in Borracho Beans, try mine and let me know....#12169. I'm sure these are good if you can only get canned beans.....but fresh are always better!!

    These beans were fabulous! I added an extra can of pinto beans, 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled, and about 8 oz. of beer. Put all in crockpot the night before and the next morning cooked on high for 4 hours while at church. The house smelled great. We served these with chicken enchiladas. Thanks for the recipe.

    Frijoles Borracho is a dish which means, literally, "Drunk Beans". Beer is what makes it "Borracho". If you know this and choose to omit the beer, it should be noted that it is not "Borracho" and the dish could be called "soupy beans" or something...but, she also made no reference to the fact that, unlike most Pinto Beans, "Frijoles Borracho" is very soupy. Maybe the cook doesn't know "Frijoles Borracho" and just misnamed the beans. If not, I'm confused. Other than the beer omision, the other ingrediants should hit the spot. Whatever, I love Pinto Beans and these are probably good, drunk or sober.

    Belated celebration of May 5th1 Made these beans to do with Ducky's Taco Chicken. Nice side dish that simmers for just about as long as most main dishes take. Tasty, healthy, and easy!
