Cowboy BBQ Pinto Beans and Rice
Did you know cowboys in the old west really did eat beans? That’s because beans were readily available and easy to carry. Needless to say, out on the range, beans were prepared different ways, sometimes with chilies added for spice, or molasses for a bit of sweetness. Our Cowboy BBQ Pinto Beans and Rice are lightly sweetened with dried apples, but no added sugar. Like every good BBQ, they also include tomato and familiar ketchup and mustard type spices. The flavor is similar to traditional slow cooked baked beans.
Kids especially enjoy our Cowboy Pinto Beans and Rice because of the slight sweetness and mild spice. The light apple sweetness also blends nicely with bitter greens. Try with sauteed chard, kale, cabbage, collards, or bok choy.
