I am picking up a friend at PDX Friday night and will be heading up into Washington -- any good and not too slow food around PDX or up into the I205 part of Vancouver? Prefer mexican, italian, american/burger.
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.
