These beans usually contain tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. I added some bell pepper to add a little extra flavor; I even left most of the seeds in the peppers to give it a little heat. We have only been Texans for about a month now but we already love our food spicier than before we left!
Generally to make borracho beans you start out by purchasing dried beans and soaking them then letting the beans stew for a few hours. I didn’t feel like baby sitting beans all day (because we have a new addition to our home that I would much rather spend my time babysitting anyway… see note below).
