Introducing Bush’s Cocina Latina Beans!
If you’ve read many of my menu plan posts, we eat a lot of Tex-Mex and barbecue around here. Coming up with new and interesting side dishes is not my best skill in the kitchen. However, I think one of the best inventions EVER was canned beans. Sometimes I’ll add a little of this and a little of that, but there’s one kind I don’t have to add a thing to.
Our favorite is the Cocina Latina line by Bush’s. These beans have some great Latin American and Southwestern influence, making them a family favorite. They come in a variety of flavors, and with a new formulation, our favorite Pintos a la Diabla are now vegetarian!
Now available at Wal-Mart, Bush’s Cocina Latina beans come in a variety of flavors. Choose from:
- Frijoles Cubanos
- Frijoles Negros Machacados
- Frijoles a la Mexicana
- Pintos a la Diabla
- Traditional Refried Beans
- Traditional Fat Free Refried Beans – also vegetarian!
- and more!
While we love our “Devil Beans” as my husband calls them as them, there are some great recipes that you can make with Bush’s Cocina Latina Beans. Use them anywhere you would like to add a little spice and seasoning to dishes. When I make chili, I commit the cardinal sin of Texas chili and include beans. Using Cocina Latina beans adds great flavor and body to my chili without having to precook dried beans.
When my oldest son went off to college, he wanted my chili recipe. I adapted it to not make quite so much, but still retain all of the flavor.
Here’s my recipe for 30 minute chili:
1 can Bush’s Cocina Latina Pintos a la Diabla
1 can red kidney beans
1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can tomato sauce
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 envelope of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cup of water
Combine all ingredients. Bring to boil, allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
Check out this 5 Layer Dip. Wouldn’t that be great for a party? I’d make it and someone else would have to keep me from eating the whole thing!
But, since we all know how much I love saving money, I have a great special offer!
