mexican cowboy beans
 
one way i have learned to use chiles de arbol is as a finishing touch in 
wonderful mexican cowboy beans, such as the vaqueros make/made, as found 
in that wonderful mexican cookbook i have quoted so often online before, 
_cocina de la familia_ which is now a july selection in the book of the 
month club's cookbook club. 
 
3 cup  of beans
  water
  half a white onion
  oil
sprig  of epazote
6 oz.  of chorizo
2   goodsized tomatoes
5   whole chiles de arbol
 
take about 3 cups of beans, clean them up. put them in a large pot, 
without soaking, covering them with water that is "2 knuckles above the 
surface of the beans." put half a white onion in the beans, and drizzle a 
bit of oil on the water (keeps them from foaming). bring them to a boil, 
then cook them at at medium low for an hour to an hour and a half. at that 
point, add a sprig of epazote (mine grew to almost 6'...it is now at eye 
level with me and in flower), the other half of the white onion, chopped, 
and some salt. cook about another 45 minutes until softish. 
 
take 6 oz of chorizo, saute it for about 15 minutes, and then add the 
chopped onion. saute until the onion is soft and the chorizo starting to 
crisp. drain the onion and chorizo on thick paper towels. chop two 
good-sized tomatoes and saute them in the onion/chorizo dripping mixture 
for about 3 minutes. put the onions, chorizo, and tomatoes into the bean 
pot and cook for about 20 minutes. then add 5 whole chiles de arbol to 
finish it off. you need to keep the beans moist, and you can add some 
beer, water or wine (we used some chianti last night) at this point. 
 
we serve them with mounds of tomatoes, cilantro, chopped onion, and lots 
of queso cotijo (grated) or grated queso anejo, and tortillas. these beans 
are a meal in themselves, and worthy for an aztec emperor :) enjoy!
