“This is kind of a latin amalgamation of spices, with Peruvian beans called Mayocabo. You can do it with Pinto beans as well. You can get Mayocabo beans at H.E.B. stores if you live in Texas. These are pretty spicy. It takes a long time to cook Mayocabo beans. The flavors will not meld until the beans are almost done and make a sort of gravy. Then flavors will get smooth.”
