Mom’s Frijoles

This year has been great to learn new and old things. This is an old recipe, my mom and her family has the best frijoles recipe. I have always wonder how my mom makes her beans but never actually tried to make them…I guess, I was too afraid to be disappointed.

Now that I know how easy is this recipe, I have been eating beans at least once a month and it never disappoints me. The best part is that beans are healthy that there is no guilt when I eat them. I wish I could say the same to every single thing I eat….

I hope you join this frijolada party!
