I just put some pinto, negros and small red beans in to soak. In the morning I will throw it all into a crock pot with a few other things. I want to use some adobo sauce and chillies and onions. Going to use a recipe or two as a guide. Will add bacon, most likely frozen, or Ill thaw the bacon over night.

Hi Seamus! I love beans! One hint, do not add salt until they are done cooking as salt will make them tough. Enjoy! I'm not even sure I could pick a "favorite" bean. I like them all :)!!

Salt pork is also a good addition. Tomato paste and some brown sugar should round out the flavors nicely and give you a nice sauce.

Some garlic and celery might be interesting. I sometimes use carrots if I have them as it sweetens the flavor.

About Me
I was born in cadiz, Spain but was raised on the wonderfull island of Okinawa. We moved to United States in 1972 at age 8. I am learning to cook and care for my self at age 46. This IS a chalinge!!
My favorite things to cook
Wow, so many!! I love the foods of Okinawa and Spain the best but I do make mostly Mexican food. I do live about an hour away from Mexico afterall. The food of the South is great, mum's kin moved to VA in 1632. Chinese food is allso awasome!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm, maby mum making real fried chicken(I dont eat chicken any more)and making greens and corn bread. Mum was from the rural South and knew how to cook! Da was from canada but I dont think he was a cook.
My cooking triumphs
Finly baked bread that was good. NOT a brick or raw. People evan asked for the recipe!
My cooking tragedies
Are only lesons. A learning tool.
