Anyone want to make these with Ghost peppers


I've tried it with Habenero's before and it was amazing...

If I had easy access to ghost peppers I would probably do something stupid like adding them to the recipe.

Something we like to do with leftovers is to add some taco meat the mix, and then slap that on some flour tortillas with a little cheese. Makes a damn tasty chili cheese burrito.

We discovered the Phoenix on our last trip over there. Great food and the service was great. Had a "home" feel to it for us.

Tried the chili but not the ghost pepper chili. Burger was on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives I believe

MAde these again a few weeks ago. Added a ring of chopped up venison sausage. Wife loved them even more. We made a pot of rice and will make this a complete meal with some corn bread.

Made another batch for the covered dish dinner held after church. Everytime I bring it, the pot is empty when I go home. It is to the point now that I am asked "Are you going to bring your beans again?"

Thanks for posting the recipe. It is a hit again & again!

Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) twists on the recipe? I know the best part of this recipe is it is Quick/Easy - but made some Black Eye's from dry beans in 30 minutes yesterday. Just curious if anyone has played around with the new version of our Grandmothers pressure cooker and any of these bean recipes....
JFTR - I have no idea how this magic works. Dry bean to done in 1/2 hour???

I've always heard that you have to be real careful cooking beans in a pressure cooker because it can clog up the pressure release and build up enormous pressures. A relative of mine died from very extensive burns when she was a little girl when a pressure cooker exploded. She didn't survive to the next day. My mother never would use pressure cookers because of that.

I assume that today's electric pressure cookers can detect the over-pressure and shut off the heating elements.

As far as how they work, by raising the pressure, they raise the boiling point of water, thereby reducing the cooking time of the beans.

Depending on where you live, you might notice that cooking times can differ quite a bit depending on where you live because of the altitude. A general rule of thumb is that for every 500 foot increase in elevation the boiling point of water decreases by about 1 degree Fahrenheit. For example, it takes longer to cook spaghetti or to boil potatoes in the Texas Panhandle than along the Gulf Coast. I've read of someone trying to boil a potato on Pike's Peak and they concluded that it might take all night because of the lower temperature of the boiling water.

You can raise the boiling point a bit by adding salt to the water. A fully saturated brine should boil about 10 F higher than plain water.

This recipe is fantastic. I love to mix it in with scrambled eggs and avocado for a great breakfast.

Alright, I've seen this thread pop-up over the years and I finally made a pot last night. They are really good. They taste even better the 2nd day. My wife loves it, and even took a serving to give to a friend. So glad I got around to trying these - it was a quick pot of beans on a cold and wet evening. Thank you, OP!

I cut back on the peppers (used 1 large jalapeo, no seeds) because the others in my family don't like 'em. It definitely needs more than what I put in there. I'm not a huge fan of Clamato, but it does add flavor - maybe next time I'll cut it with some beer.

My wife and I have made them a few times. The 1st time with 4 serrano peppers as sated in the recipe and they were great. The next time they were uncomfortably spicy with 4 serrano peppers. My wife has tried removing seeds from 1/2 the peppers, all the peppers, 3 peppers with seeds, then 3 without seeds, and finally 2 whole peppers. The last pot with 2 whole peppers seems to be just right. I'm not sure what's going on with the serrano peppers out here, but they're getting hotter over time. 4 whole serrano peppers now is just food texture and fire. We've grown up on tex-mex so we're not strangers to spicy food.

Substituting Clamato with ZigZang due to allergy concerns and will seed all Seranos for a mixed crowd but leave the seeds in 2-3 for regular crowd.

Have had 4 with seeds be perfect or way too hot for people up so err on the side of caution.

Forgot Clamato at the store the other day and actually used ZingZang instead. Turned out well.

Made these last night, and holy hell were they good. My wife was convinced she wasn't going to like them (due to the canned beans), but I think she liked them even more than I did. Used two serranos and a whole jalapeno to keep the heat down for her.

We have made these a bunch of times. The beans are awesome. I was looking up the recipe cause I'm making some today. Just thought I give my thumbs up finally.

Serranos are like a box of chocolates......

I've found that if I seed them, then saut with the bacon/onion mixture it takes some heat out and gives them a better flavor.

I made some to take to Thanksgiving Dinner at my niece's house. They went over real well.

Usually they end up really hot. One time they ended up so mild that I could hardly eat them.

This time they had a nice balance. I would have liked hotter, but most there wouldn't have liked them. They were very flavorful with some heat but not overwhelming.

For you people talking about taking the seeds out to cut down on the heat. The seeds aren't the hot part. It is the spongy placenta material they are connected to that contains the capsaicin. If you remove the seeds and not the spongy placenta material, the pepper will still be hot. If the seeds are hot it is just because of oil coming off the placenta due to proximity. Just trying to help.

I think when people talk about removing the seeds they mean all of the inner part or at least I do.

Pretty hard to do one and not the other - especially when scraping with a small spoon like I do.

About to make a pot. This is probably my 10th time to make them and I still can't believe how awesome they are!
