Pinto bean sourdough, with chipotle, chorizo, cilantro and smoked cheddar

With pureed chipotle with adobo sauce, a spicy loaf 😋I like the color!

 

The ground chorizo taste so good, but it makes an ugly looking crumb, kind of look like patches of some kind of brownish porridge that I failed to mix in lol next time I'll use a diced up dried chorizo instead.

Another failed double slash, too straight, too long...

sounds awesome! Do you eat it plain or as sandwich bread?

We snacked on that and also paired it with our usual meat and veggies meals. Sometimes soup and bread too😋I'd imagine this would be fantastic with guac, but it's almost gone so we probably won't find out this time....

Chorizo, cilantro, chili and cheese? Looks like my kind of bread! We should get along pretty well :) I like all of your creative combinations, especially when they involve legumes. Always working on getting more beans in my diet. I prefer the texture of Spanish chorizo to Mexican chorizo too.

The double slash isn't half bad! Neither is the color of the crumb. Nice bake!

That's the original idea! Bean+grain =complete protein, so it's a good excuse to munch on a thick slice of bread as a post workout snack, right? My logic!
