This is a lighter, vegetarian version of a traditional dish favored by the caballeros (cowboys) of northern Mexico. Chipotle peppers provide a smoky flavor that in the original dish is supplied by bacon.

  1. Heat oil in a large, deep skillet; add onions and cook until translucent. Add tomatoes and garlic; cook until garlic begins to brown.
  2. Add presoaked beans, beer, vegetable stock, cinnamon and chipotle peppers. Simmer for 1 hour or until beans are tender, adding more stock as necessary. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with fresh cilantro.
