  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, diced
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 ears of corn, kernels and milk scraped from cobs (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked pinto beans, drained (cooked until just tender)*
  • 2 cups cooked navy or cannellini beans, drained (cooked until just tender)*
  • 2 cups cooked black beans, drained (cooked until just tender)*
  • 2 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • *cook's note: if heirloom beans are available, then they are a great choice. this dish is even better if prepared 1 day in advance. take care to reheat slowly so that the beans do not become mushy - and add a bit of water, if necessary, to facilitate reheating.
