Frijoles Recipe

We do two frijoles dishes at Wahaca – one with chorizo crumbled on top and the other with Lancashire cheese and sour cream… so feel free to adapt as you wish.


Serves 4


400g cooked black beans
½ red chilli
2 stems of coriander
At least 50g butter
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped


To serve

Crumbled chorizo or grated Lancashire and sour cream



Cook the onion in the butter until soft then add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Drain the beans reserving the cooking liquid. Add the cooked beans with a little of their cooking liquid and whiz in the food processor. Remove to a bowl and season to taste.


Allow to cool and serve with finely chopped shallots, a garnish of coriander and a crumbling of chorizo. It’s ideal with a bowl of torilla crisps and a cold beer.
