I've been on a Yellow Indian Woman kick these days. They're such a delicious, dense yet soft bean and they have a superior broth. You can have them in a salad or you can be like me and enjoy them with brown rice, making your inner hippie happy. As I get older, my inner hippie is never far from the surface. I also had some leftover nopalitos (boiled cactus paddles) and just to make it all seem like a party, I chopped up some fresh mozzarella. The mozzarella started to melt and mix with the bean broth and suddenly it was a pretty good breakfast. I have a ham hock sitting in my fridge but I still prefer these beans with just olive oil, onion and garlic.
