If you are not blessed by having a Chuy’s in your state, I want to go ahead and send you my condolences. In the South, Chuy’s Tex-Mex is a classic. I’ve always loved their delicious guacamole and many veggie options, but had never gotten their charro beans, simply because I assumed they added bacon to their recipe (like most restaurants down South do). HOWEVER, this past week while eating out, I was surprised when my server informed me that their delicious charro beans recipe is vegetarian-friendly… what a fantastic surprise! Life’s all about the small joys, you know :)
After trying their spicy beans, I had to come home and create my own healthy twist on their recipe…. because who doesn’t like the same taste with less calories & fats, and more fiber & protein….
