Black & Pinto Mexican Beans

Mexican food is one of my favourite foods, and beans are my core! With being vegetarian, beans are always the substitute for beef or chicken to any mexican dish specially in Baja Mexican food. Making beans is a little time-consuming however you can make them in advance and freeze, or I tend to make a double or triple batch knowing I'm going to freeze for the future.

You can serve these beans with a burritos bowl, enchiladas, burritos, nachos on even just on their own as a soup or side. You can mash them up slightly if you prefer, I do like the pretty whole as these 2 beans are my favourite. Black beans and Pinto beans are pretty much the staple in the mexican diet, but you do sometimes struggle to get them in here in the UK, or can be a little expensive but always worth it.
