Humble Bean Pot
In an attempt to reduce our food expense, I've been making a large pot of beans once a week. I variate between pinto beans and black beans. While beans are economical, they are also extremely nutritious yielding a generous serving of protein and fiber. A large pot provides the base for several meals: beans and rice, fried bean and cheese tacos, refried beans for nachos and dip, pasta fagioli soup and chili are the meals we made out of last weeks humble bean pot.
