My wife made tacos a few days ago and it kicked off my need for more Mexican flavors. I often make killer keto cowboy style baked beans with my bbq meals. I decided it’s time I mastered a keto Mexican charro style beans. These are black soybean with bacon ends, chicken chorizo, poblanos , onions, chicken stock , diced tomato and chili morita paste. Spices include cumin, Mexican oregano, garlic, , bay leaves and a packet of Sazon Goya. These were really made as side dish prep for fajitas on the Blackstone griddle. Monday night Blackstone griddle fiesta. Chile lime marinated ribeye and chicken. Chicken is paired with grilled onions ,bell peppers and salsa. Steak with grilled poblanos and a chipotle crema. 🔥 😋 All keto. The beans are out of this world good. Happy to type up the recipe if anyone wants it. It will be a staple for us moving forward.

Holly Cow Jeff! That looks incredible. You took those beans to the next level. I going to want that recipe when you get some time. I knew i bought some chorizo and poblanos for a reason. IMy favorite chorizo is actual Johnsville but been unable to find it lately.

Nice!! I did my first black soy bean a la charra this past weekend. I did 45min on high in Instant Pot. I'm going to try 75min for softer beans. I kind of refuse to soak overnight since I'm using a pressure cooker so I'm hellbent on figuring out the timing to go from dry bean to pinto consistency for making refried. Once I figure it out I'll report back :)

When you find the time/setting please let us know. I want to get some of these soy beans
 
but remeber soaking the beans releases the complex carbs that dont digest they ferment and ya toot
 
For those interested also note when you are in a hurry Eden sells the black soy in cans. It’s a bit pricier that way but they are perfect. I actually used the canned in this. Recipe was 3 cans Eden black soy, 1 lbs bacon ends, 1 lbs chicken chorizo, 1 1/2. cups each diced poblano and onion, 1 15oz can diced tomato drained, 2 cups strong chicken broth, 1-2 packets Sazon Goya, 1T each cumin, dk chili, coarse black pepper, Mexican oregano , 3 Bay leaves and lastly 2 T Chile Morita paste. First fry bacon and drain grease as necessary leaving plenty for cooking as you add the onions and peppers. While those sauté cook the chorizo in a separate pan. With chicken chorizo I didn’t have to drain at all, with standard you likely will. Combine both pans and add the rest of the ingredients. I simmered for a couple hours. You could serve with a lot of liquid as a stew or as a side I wanted thicker. I added xanthan gum sparingly until I got the consistency I wanted. Just finished a small bowl at lunch and dang these things are addictive.

Whoa Jeff!! That is a truly spectacular meal. Every time I think you can't get it any better you come up with something like this, which is one of, if not THE very best I've seen you put together. Outstanding job my friend!!

I bought it a a craft butcher shop last week. It was very tasty and lean. I’m going to try to make a homemade batch for sure.
