Comments: Black Bean and Chipotles in Adobo Slow-cooked Stew

Comments

I've been thinking about buying a crock pot (any advice?) this winter, not because I don't have time to cook, but because I think there are some dishes that might actually benefit from this very slow (and untended) cooking. I'll save this recipe!

Black beans? Chipotle? Meg, I'm so proud. I thought I'd sleep-written a post.

This looks delicious. I have some chipotles that need using.

Does the thyme stand up against the chipotles?

WhileI do not know either of you, and I occasionally post here and read you regularly, when I saw the title of the post, I immediately thought "BARRETT". Wrong!

First time reader here, and seriously, black beans and chipotle, outstanding! I love black beans and chipotle peppers, I just don't have a crock pot!

Meg,
Where do you find black beans in Paris (preferably close to the 17eme)?
Thanks!

Scott, you could just slow cook them on the stove for a few hours - the main difference being that you wouldn't want to go off to work leaving it cooking on the stove.

Taina, I'm pretty sure I got the beans from the Galeries Gourmandes in the Palais des Congres at Porte Maillot, which is (just) in the 17th! Otherwise, drag yourself down to Mexi & Co. on rue Dante in the 5th and stock up on all kinds of Mexican goodies from fresh tortillas to sauces to tequila!

Help!

I need to find black beans and kale in paris. I've been almost everywhere looking for kale, and I can only find little black soybeans, which are not the same as the good old black bean.

Close to 13th would be great, but will travel anywhere (in Paris) for kale.

thanks!
Ericka

Ericka, I have seen black beans in a few places. Two that come to mind are the Galeries Gourmandes in the Palais des Congres at Porte Maillot (near the entrance on the right there is a section with Brazilian/South American foods) and Mexi & Co. in rue Dante in the 5th (it's a Mexican speciality shop). I haven't seen kale anywhere I'm afraid. In general, the organic markets have a more exotic variety of vegetable so you might want to try the one in the 17th or the one in the 6th.

Hope that helps!

Kate,
Did you buy your Crock Pot in Paris? If so, please tell me where! Thanks!

Cheryl, I bought mine through Monoprix's online shop, www.telemarket.fr. It was on sale for a mere 30 euros, but I don't think it's something they regularly stock.

You can also get them at most Darty stores (www.darty.fr) but I think they are more expensive, in the region of 70 euros.
