Tender and creamy Borracho Beans (or Frijoles Borrachos) are an easy Mexican dish made from pinto beans. Simmer them in a beer broth with bacon, onions, tomatoes and spices and enjoy! Serve with a side of cornbread or flour tortillas for the perfect Tex-Mex dinner!
Borracho Beans (or Frijoles Borrachos in Spanish) translate to “drunken beans.” But don’t let the name fool you – these beans won’t leave you feeling boozy. The entire recipe contains only one 12-ounce beer, which translates to one ounce per serving.
I prefer Borracho Beans over refried beans any day of the week! They are comfort food at its best, especially when you eat them with fajitas, enchiladas, tamales, or quesadillas and serve it also with Spanish rice. It’ll be a Tex Mex party in your mouth!
