Throwback Thursday: Borracho Beans

#3 from 2020

I’m taking a look back at my most popular recipes from 2020. #3 on the list is Borracho Beans. These are a classic of the Tex-Mex border, popular on both sides of the Rio Grande. It’s a simple pot of beans, but the key ingredient is beer – that’s what makes them “Drunk Beans”. Of course, I pressure cook them. Dried beans made my pressure cooker an essential piece of kitchen equipment, not just a gadget to be left on the shelf gathering dust.
