This recipe does not actually have chicken, but the beans create the appearance of chicken, and hence the name of the dish. They say that originally this recipe of our beloved Mexican cuisine was born in Sonora, but they appropriated it in many states of northern Mexico. This original Painted Hen Recipe is from the book “The Senators that Cook” published in 1964

INGREDIENTS for Painted Hen

  • 2 cups corn
  • 1 beef tail
  • 1 1/2 cups of pink beans
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 green chilies
  • 2 bunches of spinach
  • Salt to taste
