    REFRIED BEANS WITH CHEESE AND PORK : Frijoles Puercos

    Sinaloa is famous for its wonderful seafood specialties, but I vividly remember the devastatingly rich, unctuous, pork-laden frijoles puercos (literally, “pork beans”) that were served like clockwork at every meal, as if to balance out all that healthy fish.

    HOW TO MAKE STEAMED RICE : Arroz al Vapor

    As long as you make a few adjustments to your usual method for making rice, your slow cooker can double as a rice cooker. For the best results, use converted (which is not the same as instant) long-grain white or brown rice, which stays perfectly al dente and does not clump. Tossing the rice with […]
