I bought canary beans on a whim, just because I'd never eaten them and they were yellow. Looking on the internet for recipes for canary beans I found one that added coconut milk to the cooked beans and I wondered what would happen if I cooked them in coconut water. Well, they turned out pretty tasty! The heat from the peppers give the sweet coconut water a nice contrast. —nannydeb
dry canary beans, soaked in water overnight
fresh peppers (I used two jalapenos and a serrano, but you could use Thai chili or none at all)
