Subject: Re: Pinto Beans
A Texan also, I grew up on pinto beans, but never have thought of them
as especially Mexican.
BTW, has anyone else eaten pinto bean sandwiches?
Yes, at least once a week as a burrito. However, my mother's hamburger
joint in San Antonio apparently cleans up with bean burgers--refried beans
sold in a hamburger bun with appropriate condiments.
In Oaxaca, Mexico, one time, I was having a good deal of trouble after
eating spicy dried meat washed down with beer. I thought that I would tone
down my diet with a simple sandwich Cubano. To the horror of my stomach,
this sandwich came with a smear of refried black beans and a slice of
jalapeno. By the way, in Oaxaca, street vendors sell pancakes /pankakes/.
You can get them with "miel" (syrup) or with Eagle brand sweetened
condensed milk poured on them. Most customers got them with the milk.
That was American food.
