Inspired by Colorado Matters’ series “The Kitchen Shelf,” KRCC’s Andrea Chalfin tried her hand at a pinto bean fudge recipe.

Pinto beans are queens of the table in Southwest Colorado-- even inspiring a fudge recipe. Our colleague from KRCC, Andrea Chalfin, tries her hand at the recipe. Then, cookie recipes from a town that no longer exists. Plus, flavors from the first Thai restaurant in the U.S. And barbecue history from the Soul Food Scholar.
