Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

  • Rating
"An old fashioned 'pot of beans' recipe. It starts with dry pinto beans, onion, and chicken broth. Add green chili salsa, jalapeno and cumin for the spicy kick." — by Fooddude 
Brazilian White Rice

Brazilian White Rice

  • Rating
"White rice is the main side dish made in Brazil. This is the way my mom would make it and taught my sister and I. What makes this so different is that we fry it in oil with minced onion and garlic before adding water. You can also use part water, part chicken broth. The secret is to not let it overcook because it should come out loose and not sticky." — by Nandabear
