Followed this recipe to a T, used Rancho Gordo cranberry beans (a.k.a. borlotti beans), and made the pico de gallo as well. Was really looking forward to this because of rave reviews I read online, but the end result was actually very bland and disappointing. The instructions call for too much water in the cook time: I think it definitely could be reduced, or else perhaps left as is but with the pot uncovered during the first boil.
So delicious! This was an easy recipe with spectacular results! Made it with Rancho Gordo's Ayacote Amarillos and they were so good!
Incredible recipe, perhaps the best I’ve ever made. Used Rancho Gordo beans and chilies.
