Mom always said, “If there are frijoles in the house, then you have something to eat.” Beans are a true staple in Mexico. Freshly made frijoles de la olla is my favorite way to have beans. There is nothing more pure and earthy than the taste of homemade pinto beans. My kids love bean burritos, but there are so many ways to use frijoles. You can eat them straight out of the pot, hence the name frijoles<
