I brought some Tepary Beans home from Arizona. They are a variety of bean that has been cultivated in the southwest since ancient times. This recipe is my adaptation of Michelle Dudash's recipe from her blog. It can also be made with other kinds of beans. I did not count the overnight soaking in preparation time, fyi!
