We love beans: they're full of iron, they are healthy and they fill you up. They're delicious in soups, boiled, with rice, in tostadas or tacos and of course in the classic Mexican style: refried! They are part of the staple diet of all Mexican people just as much as tortillas and chillies are. We don't have any hang ups about their colour or texture, or in deed the fact that just piled on a plate, they look highly unattractive! We just like them too much for that.
Whether you want to make them from scratch, or you want the quick option and get them tinned, we have selected a few we normally eat. Go on, have a go and eat some beans, you know what they say ' they're good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you.... '
My Mexican Shop is run by husband and wife team, Lily & Alan. He is Irish and she is Mexican and they met in Japan over 15 years ago. Lily has been living and cooking in Ireland for over 10 years now.
They both share a passion for good food, travel and cooking; When not busy running their business and carrying out other work endeavours, they can be found in their Dublin kitchen, cooking (mainly Lily) and eating (mainly Alan) all sorts of yummy food.
