    I want to clear out my pantry and I have a whole bunch of beans.  There are people coming over tonight but I can't really think of anything else to do with it.

    My sister in law makes a great "taco" style bean dip.  Seasoned ground meat, rotel tomatoes, cheese, beans, jalapenos layered and baked.  She uses refried beans, but you could proc them if whole with a little stock if need be.

    Bean soup if it is cold outside comes to my mind or a colorful bean salad.

    Do not forget the bacon in your soup to make it tasty and if you make a bean salad with bacon it will be better than without it /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    And if you do use bacon make sure you add lots of hot chili peppers since the capsaicin is known to prevent cancer .

    Cook, mash, fry in bacon fat with taco seasoning added. Put in a serving dish and top with a layer of nacho cheese(Rico's is a good canned brand), then a layer of olives and scallions(chopped). Spread sour cream over the top, have salsa on the side. Serve with various chips and cold beer! Always a hit at football games!

    I will google if I have to but IMO you prolly make the best....

    Describe?

    Not here to poke the bear or hurt any feelings 'cuz the layered "taco dip" is a standard at every party I work/attend.

    Just not a personal favorite...think it has something to do with the many different textures in the dish.

    Plus I once had to wash the casserole someone brought one in.

    The guest had garnished with shredded lettuce and chopped canned tomatoes.

    The gray/brown of the avocado mixed with the limp lettuce made me gag.

    Wanted to throw the dish away and report as stolen lol.

    Hey mimi. Using Google translator (pretty good indeed).

    Trotters with beans

    4-6 clean pork trotters cut in halves.
    1 Cotechino. Pork skin works well too (almost the same).
    300 gr. white (butter?) beans.
    2 onions.
    3 cloves of garlic.
    ½ cup olive oil.
    Salt.
    Parsley.
    Water.
    ½ glass of port.
    Black pepper.
    1 chilli.

    Soak the beans the day before.
    In a clay pot saute two medium onions brunoise, the chilli and some garlic cloves.
    Pour the legs and brown them.
    Add salt and pepper.
    Deglaze with Porto.
    Add the beans, ¾ liter of water, and the cotechino.
    When the beans and trotters are done, crush some beans to thicken the sauce.
    Serve with finely chopped parsley and a splash of olive oil.

    As a side, boiled potatoes are perfect.
