Mexican Bean Hotpot

Mexican Bean Hotpot created by Acerast

A hearty Mexican vegetable dish made with red kidney beans. To vary the dish, vary the beans. And to make it vegetarian, omit the bacon or replace it with vegetarian sausage. I have posted this recipe, adapted from an International Masters '1001 recipes for Pan or Wok' for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Good! But this tastes very similar to recipe #48284, which is much faster to make. I was disappointed because I was looking for something different. I would like to tweak it so the sweet chili sauce is a more pronounced flavor in the final dish.<br/>5/24/13: Better- 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce, smoked paprika instead of cumin, and a tablespoon of bbq sauce. A whole different recipe, I guess... but very delish!

    Who would think that kidney beans could taste so good? Not only was it delicious, but the chunkiness of the vegetables and bits of bacon made this have a great "mouth-feel". I used a green capsicum which added contrast to the red beans. tomatoes, and orange carrots. It went very nicely with tacos made from Recipe#369923 and Recipe#161522. Thamks bluemoon downunder. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT5 and will make this way again :)

    I loved these beans! They had such wonderful flavors, especially since I love anything Mexican. I made these to go with Recipe #307580, and we enjoyed the combination. These beans are great any time of year. I plan to have them another time with hot dogs and burgers off the grill. Thank you for sharing with us Bluemoon! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game 4/09 Linda
