Frijoles Puercos


Cooked pinto beans Chipotle pepper in adobo sauce Salt Lard (or olive oil) Pork chorizo Onion Monterey Jack shredded Bean broth (optional)

Blend until smooth


To a blender, add the pinto beans, chipotle, and salt. Blend until smooth. You might need to add some of the bean broth to blend the beans. Set aside.

Add chorizo and cheese


In a large skillet, melt the lard. Cook the chorizo, then the onion. Add the bean mixture to the skillet and the cheese.

Mix everything


Cook until cheese is melted. This will only take a minute or two to melt. Stir occasionally, so the beans won’t burn. The dip will be very thick.

Ready to serve


Creamy, cheesy, and slightly addictive. Frijoles Puercos is the ultimate Mexican bean dip. Serve with chips and dig in!
