Rattlesnake Beans have variegated tan to reddish-brown skins streaked and speckled with mahogany or dark brown, similar to their relative the pinto bean. The menacing name comes from the way the red-streaked green pod grows, in a curved or coiled shape resembling a snake.

  1. Heat oil in stock pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onions and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add all remaining ingredients except cheese and sour cream. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

  3. If stew is too thick, add water or stock to achieve desired thickness. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve garnished with shredded cheese and sour cream, if desired.

Carefully sort beans, and rinse thoroughly. Soak overnight in cold water. Drain and rinse. Return to pot and cover by 2 inches with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour, until tender.
