Beans are such an important part of Mexican cuisine, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone out there that the Randall family loves celebrating Cinco de Mayo!

This holiday is a celebration of Hispanic culture and heritage, so what better way to celebrate than cooking up some amazing Cinco de Mayo recipes with Randall Beans?

We rounded up a couple of our favorite Mexican recipes from our own collection, as well as a couple other tasty creations we found!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!


Slow Cooker Charro Beans

Charro beans are a Mexican bean soup using hearty pinto beans in a flavorful broth typically using onions, garlic and bacon. This version of the dish from House of Yumm helps deepen these classic flavors by letting it simmer in a slow cooker. Chicken stock and jalapeños add even more flavor and spice to the soup while it is allowed to stew together. This recipe includes extra steps on soaking dried pinto beans overnight… but of course if you use Randall Pinto Beans there is no prep necessary!


Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Lasagna

Enchiladas are delicious, but for inexperienced chefs, the assembly can be a little frustrating. Making sure the enchiladas are tightly rolled, fussing with the messy sauce, it isn’t the most difficult task but certainly a lot of work. This Randall Beans recipe cuts all the fuss out of enchilada-making by layering tortilla and filling like a lasagna! It is fun to make and eat, loading up on zesty green chilies, juicy shredded chicken and hearty great northern beans for a bit of a different take on Mexican cuisine.
