    • One 15 oz can of Pinto Beans - drained and rinsed
    • One 15 oz can of Maize aka Sweet Corn - drained and rinsed
    • One 12 oz can of Beer - American Lager (I used PBR)
    • One Small Jalapeño pepper - chopped fine

    • Two Medium Fresh Potatoes, peeled and diced
    • Two Large Jalapeño peppers, chopped, seeds left in
    • 1/2 Small Onion, chopped fine
    • Two Large Carrots, peeled and sliced thick
    • Two Tbs Butter
    • One Tsp Oregano
    • Two Tsp Rosemary
    • 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper (about 30 grinds?)
    • 1/4 Tsp Salt (or to taste)

    Combine meat, onions, jalapeños, butter,…
