I am not exaggerating when I say that everyone thought that these Spanish style beans from Drick’s Rambling Cafe are the best they ever had. They have a great southwestern zing to them. They are packed with so many flavors. And they are definitely out-of-the-ordinary crazy delicious.

Spanish Style Beans

These Spanish style beans are not only great as a side, but also great on hot dogs or as a dip (get a bag of those big Frito Scoops and dig in!).

This recipe calls for Ranch Style beans. Our local Meijer grocery store did not carry them, but Kroger did. They are basically pinto beans in a seasoned sauce.

Also try my enchilada beans.
