Frijoles Charros - Cowboy Beans
Cowboy Beans in Twenty MinutesFrijoles Charros (Cowboy Beans) is a rustic, soupy stew of pinto beans, simmered in a flavorful tomato sauce with bacon and chile. An authentic Mexican dish, it gets its name from the traditional Mexican horsemen called charros, who cooked their frijoles a la charra on the range, over an open fire.
