When I was a young bride in Texas during the 60's you'd be hard pressed to come to any Texas kitchen and not find a pot of red beans either cooking or in the refrigerator. This recipe comes from a cookbook that I recieved at my wedding shower in 1966 and comes from the depression era when chocolate was not easy to come by so home cooks got creative and this red bean pie was a mock chocolate pie. It's good eating and certainly unique. Give it a shot!
