Texas Chum

What the hell is this? My friend this is a base I use for a lot of side dishes. It’s like a trinity but not. Once the Texas Chum is rockin the sky’s the limit. You can build the perfect side from greens to pinto beans. Don’t want to prep dried beans then dump a can of any bean in this. Simple ingredient base allows you to add many other parts like jalapenos or cilantro or celery or tomatoes.
