    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    These are my very own borrachos, "drunken beans" cooked with a little beer, onions, garlic, and my favorite - cumin! These are also delicious mashed with a little Oaxacan or Chihuahua white cheese crumbled on top, or with soft warm corn tortillas. The heat can be adjusted with more (or less) poblanos or hot sauce, and prep time includes soaking the beans (using my quick soak method).
