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.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
