Also known as Mexican frijoles charros, is a tradicional mexican side dish. Full of flavor, and easy to do.
pinto beans, bacon, ham, hotdogs, chorizo, onion, garlic.
CAN USE OTHER BEANS INSTEAD OF PINTO BEANS?
Yes you can, but the flavor will be different.
and maybe the cooking time too. But play with it. Im pretty sure they will be awesome.
WHAT CAN YOU EAT THEM WITH?
My hubby likes to put some pepper inside, and some corn tortillas.
This Mexican frijoles charros , we eat them very often, is consider as an entrance.
Served alongside some carne asada (I have a really good marinate steak that goes with this Mexican frijoles charros pretty good)
Fresh corn tortillas, and a Horchata drink for a delicious and culturally authentic Mexican Food.

MEXICAN FRIJOLES CHARROS
- FOR THE BEANS
- 5 cups dried pinto beans
- 1 onion cut in forths
- 1 tbsp salt
- FOR THE FRIJOLES CHARROS
- 1 cup oh diced Ham
- 1 package of hotdogs diced
- 6 slices of bacon
- 1 pack of chorizo. (250gr.)
- 1 onion diced
LETS COOK THE BEANS
in a big pan add the dried beans onion, salt and garlic, and add a lot of water.
If you are cooking them in the STOVE cook them for around 45min to up to 2 hrs, if you are cooking them in a SLOW COOKER for 8 to 10 hrs on low or in your INSTANT POT for 35 minutes.
Meanwhile in a pan add table spoon of oil and add the onions and cook for 3 to 5 min,then add the rest of the ingredients except the chorizo, and cook them for another 5 to 7 minutes until you see that the bacon is cooked.
Once the bacon is cooked, add the chorizo and cook it for 5 min or so, Mix everything very well.
Once this is ready and our beans are cooked,
I liked to add the beans to a big Pan with their juice (This is like a soup so you need a lot of liquid.)
and add the mixture of bacon ham etc…
and Mix it very well, let it boil for like 5 minutes and check the flavor, If you think it needs more salt this is the moment to add it and let it boil for 3 min more.
If you want to you could add some cilantro before you boil the beans.But is totally an option but very recomendable.
