Friday is National Eat Your Beans Day!
Did you know that in addition to being a great source of protein, all the beans at Felipe’s are naturally vegan? At Felipe’s we cook our beans the traditional Mexican way with only water, salt, aromatics, and epazote.
Epazote is a traditional Mexican herb that assists in breaking down the sugars in beans that are difficult for our bodies to digest. Not only does epazote add to the wonderful authentic Mexican flavor, it also helps to quiet the dreaded “musica de frijoles.”
Our menu features a wide variety of Mexican specialties that feature black beans or pinto beans, including burritos, quesadillas, and tacos. So this Friday, July 3 – or any day you want to have this delicious, nutritious treat – be sure to stop by the Felipe’s nearest you to eat your beans!
