    Frijoles Borrachos #2(Drunken Beans)

    The word borracho was a 19th century term for a drunkard, so this recipe's name literally means "drunken pinto beans." Simmering the pintos in beer, with lots of cilantro, results in a very special flavor.

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped ripe tomatoes or 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 large scallions, chopped
  • 4 cups cooked pinto beans
  • l/2 cup beer
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeņo pepper, seeded and minced, or one 4-ounce can chopped mild green chilies
  • Salt to taste
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the tomatoes and scallions and saute over moderately low heat for 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together, then simmer, covered, over low heat for 30 minutes. If there's too much liquid in the skillet at this time, cook, uncovered, until it thickens up a bit. Serve hot.
    Serves: 6 or more
