Bean is a food that cannot be missing in Colombian cuisine; it is one of the most used ingredients for our families and, without a doubt, the most loved by all of us. Its flavor is indescribable, and it seems that we do not get tired of it.
And thanks to the diversity of ingredients that we can find in Colombia, we can create different bean recipes, that is, we can add certain ingredients, so that every time we prepare them, there is a new flavor.
What kind of beans are we going to prepare today?
This time it is the turn for the ranchero beans, a preparation loved by many people, and that sometimes we do not stay very well. As they say there, we fail in our attempt, but here we are for that, so you dare to prepare them if you have not done it, or for you to try again, you will see that you will not regret going.
It is a food very desired by the elderly, although I have always noticed that most of our children also like it.
What I like about these rancher beans, is the preparation of a tasty stew, this will give it a lot of flavors. Most importantly, if we are going to use the plantain (this is what real Colombian beans do), it is essential to choose green, so that their flavor is quite balanced.
I chose this preparation because, like many, I love ranchero beans; I don’t find buts in their preparation, or at the time of tasting them, I would repeat them several times a week, and without a doubt, I would not get tired.
So I hope you prepare some delicious ranchero beans with the help of our recipe and delight in your homes eating this wonder. Let’s cook.
