Prepare Tepary Beans

  • Clean and rinse Tepary beans. Place beans into a stock pot with 3 quarts of water. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let beans soak for 2 hours. 

  • Rinse beans thoroughly. Place beans back into a stock pot with another 3 quarts of water.

  • Cut Onion in half and add to stock pot along with the dried chiles, herbs and garlic. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hrs. Add water as necessary. To finish, remove bay leaves and epazote. Season to taste.

Prepare Grain Bowl and Slurry

  • Dice all vegetables and cook rice. Set aside in each portion. Slurry: In a small bowl combine 2 oz bison stock or vegetable stock, pinch of smoked paprika, pinch of salt, and a pinch of pepper. Whisk and set aside.

  • Pre-heat sauté pan over medium/high heat with oil. When oil is hot, add red onion and poblanos. Toss ingredients occasionally and lightly salt and pepper.

  •  When poblanos are soft, but still crisp, add corn and squash. Allow to cook for at least one minute allowing fond (browning) to develop.

  • Add your preference of Tepary beans and ½ cup of stock slurry or more as needed. Add rice and toss, mixing all ingredients completely. Allow to cook at least 3 minutes until slurry is absorbed into rice.

  • Turn off heat, then add dried cranberries and mix. Finish by adding scallions.
