Each week my husband and I make a fresh batch of homemade beans. It's one of our favorite weekly routines. One of us will get the beans out, the other will smile. We cover the beans with water, let them soak overnight, drain and rinse the next day. Jerry boils them outside since the summer heat is here! When they're almost done, he brings them in, rinses them very well and cover the beans with water. Then I add a special mix of vegetables and spices until it smells irresistible, then it's ready!
Last week we used black beans combined with mayacoba beans, they are similar to a Great Northern White. Combined with onions, garlic, bell pepper, 2 fresh squeezed limes, chili powder, cayenne powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper and a generous amount of cumin.
This week we swapped the bell pepper for 2 green chili's and opted for extra chili, cayenne and red pepper flakes for a spicy kick with cilantro to add extra flavor.
I'm not sure which batch I liked more, it doesn't seem like you can loose. Even if you make them with only an onion and salt, they'll still turn out fantastic!
This meal is very healthy and can be included as a part of the 30 Day Cleanse. Enjoy!
