I saw a big box of fresh jalapeños so I'm pretty sure that they were not pickled but I do have a can of pickled ones. Should I use those instead of the smoked Oaxacans?
My fall Rancho order is imminent so I will purchase some Pintos, Flor de Junio, Red Appoloosa, Yellow Indian Woman, Eye of the Goat. But I think that this pot of beans NEEDS to happen in the next few days.
I'd save those rare and expensive Oaxacan chiles for a Oaxacan dish.
Go to a Latino store where they really turn the beans and if the pintos are really light in color, go for them. There are strains of dark pintos, but if they're darker, it's more likely they're old.
Or you could experiment with the Rio Zape's. Normally I just top them with raw, chopped onion and a squeeze of lime and I'm in heaven. Could all that pork love send you even higher? I don't know!!!!
"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed
