Cajun Crowder Beans by Amos Miller

Also known as Crowder peas, these delicious little fellas can often be found in frozen form at the store.

Fresh Pintos

Fresh Pintos by Groomsie

My grandmother Manuela taught me how to make these. She used to serve them in her restaurant in Mexico. A simple recipe which can be served as a side dish or even as an entree! Great to have your kids or grandchildren sort through the beans the night before. Remove broken beans, dirt and rocks before soaking.
