yeah, looks like the same brand as the pintos I got at foodland and the green split peas that I mistook to be lentils as I described before...made some passable refried frijoles outta the pintos...OK with homade flour tortillas...mash up the beans with a potato masher...

 

Indeed, I buy both their bags of lentils and pintos...and make nice batches of dal and frijoles with each, respectively...

Not to be argumentative, but frijoles is just Spanish for beans isn’t it?

My mom used to cook pintos and ham-hocks with big yankee-style dumplings.

Big scoop of chopped onion on top with some vinegar and Tabasco...that right there was some good sheeeat!

Mexican refried beans are commonly referred to just by the term "frijoles," which is the Spanish word for beans...

 

To be more precise, the exact Spanish language term for refried, mashed (typically) pinto beans would be "frijoles refritos."  Although there's also "frijoles negros" made from black beans, and "frijoles de la Olla," which is more of a Mexican bean stew.

i'm adding that that the frijoles refrito are neither fried nor refried. :smile:

I buy a big pot of Yolida yogurt (50bht), then when it gets near the bottom, top up with pasteurised milk, a quick stir, and leave out overnight. Next morning the new 'full' pot of yogurt goes back in the fridge. No need to clean or add anything else, just cover to keep the creatures out.

Usually works for two months, maybe three, before something goes wrong, then I just go out and buy a new pot.

Thank you very much

I also looked in the fridge to see what I had and cleaned out the vegetable bin, a kilo of tatties, some eggplants, a kilo of tomatoes and some greens that I got from tescos and a couple of cans of borlotti beans that I got from makro about 2 months ago...onoins and garlic then add the peeled toms with cumin and paprika and a half tsp of flaked red chile (gotta watch that stuff), simmer and mash up then add the diced tots, cover with broth and simmer...drain and rinse the canned beans then chop the eggplant, toss in the beans and simmer then toss in the eggplant and simmer until just softened...wash and chop the greens then add and turn off the heat, just want it to wilt...

 

the greens were a bad choice but all them thai greens look the same, these were too bitter...so just removed them and kept on rockin'...had made some bread and good with the remaining mixture...

sounds yummy. I too buy the borlotti beans from makro and I put them into my food processor with black olives for a great Mexican sauce .
