Easy Pinto Beans with Cilantro, Onions and Beer
Nothing to this simple side dish. The perfect accompaniment to any Mexican meal, you can whip it together and leave it in the pot until ready to serve. Beer and beans go together like Bert and Ernie, so pair them together at any opportunity.
2 Tbsps EVOO
1/2 chopped organic onion
1/2 cup Mexican beer
2 14oz cans organic pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped organic cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in sauce pot over medium heat. Add onion and saute until turning golden. Deglaze the pot with the beer (drink remaining beer). Add the beans, cilantro and S/P. Reduce heat to simmer and cook an additional 5-10 minutes.
