I am so excited to share this recipe for borracho beans with you! It’s a recipe I have wanted to make and was thrilled to find it in my very good friends new cookbook.
These beans are the perfect dish to make either for a weeknight side dish or as a side dish for a fiesta. This dish reminds me of El Paso and family summer cookouts.
You literally place a handful of ingredients into the slow cooker, have a good nights sleep, wake up, and your house will be filled with the aroma of bacon.
Borracho translates to “drunk” in Spanish. With your choice of Mexican beer in addition to water you will have true, savory, and spicy borracho beans
Very similar to frijoles de la olla, but with the addition of chopped bacon, onion, garlic, jalapeños and diced tomatoes. These borracho beans are creamy, spicy, and delicious.
I hope you have a chance to order Vianney’s cookbook, because it is seriously full of delicious Tex-Mex recipes that are so simple to make — all in your slow cooker. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Especially during hot months when the last thing you want to do is turn on your stove or oven.
The Tex-Mex Slow Cooker is filled with tried and true Tex-Mex recipes all made in a slow cooker. You can plan an entire fiesta with the recipes in this cookbook – everything from breakfast to appetizers to entrees to desserts.
If you didn’t know, Vianney is my co-author for Latin Twist: Traditional and Modern Cocktails and she knows a thing or two about delicious cocktails. In her new cookbook you will also find plenty of thirst-quenching Tex-Mex inspired beverages and cocktails.
Her book is filled with classic and traditional dishes she grew up eating, but also creative new recipes. Be ready to be hypnotized with queso, tequila, hibiscus, and plenty of pecans.
