An intriguing tidbit from Penny Pollack today on "May St. Cafe," 1146 W. Cermak Road in East Pilsen. Sounds very cheap and very good from the Morsels writeup. I can't find anything about this place online. Anyone know more?
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.
Sometimes, it’s best to add no liquid to the cooker. Here, we toss onion wedges, baby potatoes, and large carrot chunks with oil and harissa. We then arrange seared chicken thighs on top, and cook the mixture with no liquid added.
