Beer-Barrel Lima Beans
Dark beer flavors this high-fiber bean, poblano pepper, and onion dish known as frijoles borrachos (drunken beans). Serve the lima bean recipe with grilled meats, poultry, and fish.
Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
12 ounces shelled baby lima beans or frozen baby lima beans
1 tablespoon margarine or butter
1 small poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup dark beer
1 small red onion, quartered and sliced (about 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/8 teaspoon salt
In a 2-quart saucepan cook fresh beans, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes. (Or, cook frozen beans for 6 to 8 minutes or until the beans are just tender.) Drain.
In a large skillet heat margarine or butter; add beans and pepper. Cook and stir, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Stir in beer, onion, thyme, and salt; remove from heat. Makes 4 side-dish servings.
