These beans, a good salad, and a bottle of beer to wash it all down are about all you need for a comforting Western-style dinner beyond compare.
Just as baked beans are to an Easterner, a bowl of drunken beans, borrachos, is comfort food beyond compare to a Westerner like myself. The measurements and directions are very forgiving, so don't be afraid to improvise and come up with your own tradition.
