This is Tex-Mex in all it's glory! This is great for picnics,great for pot lucks, brunches, just anything! Feel free to use any bean you like, white kidney or black-eye peas(New Year's Day). I hope you will enjoy this, as I do.If you are short on time, use canned beans, just rinse well; same as the corn,use frozen over canned. *Vinaigrette follows*. You may use your favorite nacho chips, rather than broiling the corn tortillas.Make a bouquet garni by putting 5-6 parsley stems, 2-3sprigs fresh thyme and 1 bay leaf together with a piece of kitchen string. For the best taste, chill at least 1 hour. Soaking time not included. Times are approx.
