Will be staying in Des Plaines (near the original MacDonald's) for a day or two and am looking for a good Chicago Hot Dog. Prefer something really near-by (Jean & Jude's is not an option, nor is Super Dog).TIA
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
