Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad) by Salad Foodie

If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa.

Brew and Bean Chili

Brew and Bean Chili by Jackie Newgent

Beer’s not just for drinking anymore! It’s for stewing—or “eco-brewing.” As this chili is sans meat, the beer adds another layer of flavor. My favorite part of the recipe, though, is how fast it is to fix. My carbon footprint appreciates that and yours will, too. (Adapted from Big Green Cookbook by Jackie Newgent, RD)

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans by Amos Miller

There are two ways to go here: smoked meats (sausage, rib tips, neck bones, ham, country bacon), OR pickled meat. Either way, you'll obtain a rich flavor profile and a satisfying meal. One, warm, soft, and smokey; one tangy, slightly sharp, sort of barbeque-y, but it's always PORK and beans in the end.. My culinary mentor, whom I…
