Mexican Food Recipes
Hi, reading "what is your favorite dish" made me think about all the mexican food we eat.
My favorite recipe is for black beans.
Soak the black beans over night and rinse very well.
put in a good sized pot and cover with water, a pinch of salt, add a whole peeled onion, and 6 cloves of garlic. And a bay leaf or two.
Bring to a boil and then simmer until beans are soft.
They are great just like that but if you want refried beans, fry them up as you use them.
Saute a diced onion in a sturdy I prefer cast iron pan and then add the beans and fluid. Mash the beans with a fork; taste and add salt if needed.
We freeze what we don't eat. You'll hear me say that alot. They last longer that way.
They make great tostadas for breakfast or sides for a mexican dinner at home.
Ok, now its your turn to show off your favorite mexican recipe. I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you!
When my daughter returns I will add her fajitas which are way better then mine. And, I will try to remember all needed to make my mexican rice and enchiladas.
