Otherwise known as soup beans! I made up a big ol' batch yesterday when I was feeling down. Nothing cheers you up like the giggles brought on by a serious case of the farts!
So, here's how I made soup beans yesterday:
2 lbs pinto beans
diced dehydrated onion
can of cut cooked carrots
sort out any bad beans or pebbles missed at the factory. Put beans in pot. Cover with cold water. I was always told to remove the beans that immediately float, because they're bad, too. So I did. Add some salt to the water. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Allow to boil for two minutes. Turn off heat and allow to soak in water for one hour.
Dump out water and rinse beans. Recover beans with water and put back on stove over medium heat. Add however much garlic, onions, chili powder, cumin and whatever other spices as you think will be yummy. Once it starts to boil, cut back to a simmer. Allow to simmer for about three hours, or until the beans are slightly mushy. At some point, add a can of cooked carrots, or diced tomatoes, or whatever else you think might be yummy on that particular day (sensing a theme here?).
Once beans are cooked, dish into bowl, squirt in however much catsup you think might be yummy (I told you there was a theme) and stir up. Eat and enjoy. In about an hour, let the farting fun begin!!!! Woo hooo!
If you like cornbread, the Jiffy premixed is always yummy and easy to fix to go with this.
