That sounds pretty good. I think I'll try that. I've got some pintos in the cupboard and cilantro took over the herb garden this year so it's perfect. Any food that contains beer is alright with me.

My cilantro sure didn't take over the herb pot. The rosemary, basil, oregano, thyme, parsley and mint are going wild. My cilantro plant died up and withered away.:(
