Here is a version of Frijoles Rancheros that is fast and easy. I got the recipe from a mini cookbook put together by my son’s preschool class a few years ago. Each family submitted a few of their favorite recipes and the teachers compiled them. I love stuff like that.
4 bacon slices, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 (16 oz) can pinto beans, drained
1/3 cup chives
1/4 cup biscuit mix
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
3 slices cheddar of pepper jack cheese
Shredded cheese, pickled jalapeños, tortilla chips to serve
1. In a medium skillet, brown bacon, onion and bell pepper for about 7 minutes until tender.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients except cheese. Pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Top with cheese.
3. Bake at 375℉ for 20 minutes or until cheese melts.
Here is what is in my ears right now.
Young Galaxy are a Canadian band with a new album just out in February of this year. Queen Drum is from their second release, Invisible Republic, and it is a cracking good song. I hear strains of Sarah McLachlan in there. Love the drums.

Kid Canaveral hail from Scotland. This video is so freakin’ good.
David MacGregor’s voice is pure loveliness on this track. One of my favorites from last year off of the album ‘Shouting At Wildlife’.
