Thread: I'm making the Charro beans!

    Default I'm making the Charro beans!

    Next time I think I will have to do half of the recipe. Just the beans,
    onions and bacon alone came almost to the top of my Dutch oven. So it was
    either use the canner (which would be too big) or the Rachael Ray pasta pot.
    I opted for that even though it doesn't have a tight fitting lid. But I
    think that's a good thing because I am hoping the liquid will cook down
    quite a bit. The vegetables gave off quite a bit of liquid. Yes, I know
    the beans will absorb quite a bit of the liquid.

    I was unable to use the vegetable powder that I had. It contains lovage and
    I can't have that. I will look for something else. I know I have bought
    some compressed vegetable stuff but not sure how it is seasoned. Sadly, I
    used all of the G.W. Golden seasoning. There was only an empty package in
    the cupboard. So I will put in some beef concentrate.

    Looks like we will be eating this all week. I have some chicken that I am
    going to make for my daughter and also some sweet potatoes. And we got some
    peppers at Winco. Thankfully the prices have not gone up there. And I was
    slightly wrong on those prices. They were 48 cents for green, 68 cents for
    red and more for the yellow and orange.

    I guess I got the name slightly wrong. I WILL be making these again! They
    are soooo good! But what I wound up with is really like a soup. Next time
    I will for sure add less water. I did try to cook them down a little after
    I added the cilantro, but I didn't want to overcook the beans. The end
    result was actually a little salty. So I won't be adding any extra
    seasoning. And I screwed up and bought two bunches of cilantro! I thought
    that looked like an extra big bunch. So I will snip some and put it on top
    when I serve them. Not sure that daughter will like these because of all
    tomato in them but I certainly do!

    Take the beans out and boil the water down... or just throw some out
    if you like the seasoning as it is.

    Of course I thought of that but... It made such a lot that I didn't have a
    large enough container to put them in. I had to leave them in the pan.
    Yes, I could have taken some of the liquid out and boiled it down in another
    pan but for this week I will just eat it as soup. It is still very good.
