Author Notes: It is freezing in the wine country and I am sitting near a palm tree on Maui. This recipe is a simple recipe for beans with a little tropical twist. The best beans to use are Rancho Gordo Beans from the Napa Valley (I brought my own over here). They are the very best and freshest that I have ever tasted...Thomas Keller's own favorite beans that he uses.(Can be ordered online at Ranchogordo.com). I used Rio Zappa beans, but if you want you can substitute pintos instead.
