For book club the other night I wanted to make beans and corn bread to go with the theme of the book we read (Parchment of Leaves).
Mems told me I needed to pick up some ham to season the beans, I'm like "that doesn't work."
So instead I googled and found a recipe for vegetarian beans and fell in love.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups pinto beans
3 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes drained
Small can diced green chiles drained
2 cloves garlic
Bring the beans to boil, add ingredients and cook over 3 hours.
I served them with Jiffy corn bread. It was delicious.
Here's the original link to the recipe:
Also, Mems made the beans because she didn't think I could do it properly.
