  • 3 ounces of Chorizo
  • 2 ounces Muenster cheese 2 slices
  • 1 tablespoon pickled jalapeños chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • salt to season

To serve:

  • Hot bottle sauce
  • And tortilla chips or freshly made flour tortillas


  • Place beans in a blender and puree until smooth
  • In a very hot skillet cook the chorizo until well cooked and browned.
  • Stir in the beans, and when the beans start releasing steam, add the shredded cheese and the chopped peppers stirring until it starts to melt.
  • Add butter or lard. At this point reduce heat and keep stirring making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Add a few drops of hot bottle sauce; keep stirring for three more minutes. Serve and enjoy

A word of caution, once they are cool, they are very hot, wait a little bit for them to cool off, they are very addictive, so make enough to save for another day and just reheat.


    • This is usually made using a melting cheese called “Chihuahua” from the northern state with the same name, but you can use Monterey Jack or other melting cheese you can find in your area.
    • Traditionally “frijoles puercos” are made with lard, but you can use other types of fat like butter or oil.
