It’s no secret that my family is of Mexican descent. With that heritage comes a lot of pressure to be a good cook. There are a few recipes I remember making with my grandma, one being these Charro Beans – A Family Tradition that I want to pass to my children.
Growing up, these were made in a Mexican pot that my grandma had. I can’t remember if it was a clay or terra-cotta pot but it was that beautiful earthy, reddish color.

What I do remember is that every time I came home and saw that pot on the stove top, I knew what was in it. Sometimes, I could just smell them cooking before I even set foot in the house!
Just walking up to the yard, the scent of what was cooking was unmistakable! And you knew that there’d also be a fresh batch of homemade tortillas – Yum!!
This is totally going to disappoint you but, I can’t make a tortilla to save my life. Sad. I know. But at least these are good so there’s that!
This recipe that I am sharing today has my own spin. It’s not exactly what grandma used to make, but they are fantastic nonetheless! These go great next to this recipe I shared here a few weeks back.
