Soaked pinto beans overnight, then simmered yellow onions, cumin, Spanish oregano, and bacon until the aromas were just right. Added sofrito & simmered until just right. Then, added the beans, chicken stock, salt, pepper, and cilantro & cooked low for hours until tender. Then cooked a double batch of Jiffy cornbread, perfectly browned & still moist. This house smelled AWESOME!

Proudly informed the family that dinner of delicious beans & cornbread was almost ready. Without skipping a beat, they asked, "What are we having them with?"

"With"? When I grew up, there was no "with"...beans & cornbread WAS the meal.

Anyone else consider beans & cornbread a complete meal, or are they just sides?

The way I cook beans, you have to wade through the bacon and sausage to find the beans. Definitely a mean.

Beans and cornbread alone are a meal, with all those ingredients it's a complete meal food You're recipe sounds great! Growing up I remember my parents and grandparents cooked a meat, several vegetables or side dishes, salad, and a slice of white bread, and there was always a dessert. No way could I do all that or eat that much now days. We keep it simple and that's fine with us

Yeah, potatoes would be a good side but not necessary.

Meal.

You can also boil the taters with the beans. Tasty taters.

When I was a kid beans and cornbread was always one of my favorite meals and a regular in our rotation. Once I was grown I was talking to my mom about it and she asked if I realized we normally had it on Thursdays. I did not and she went on to inform me that dad got paid on Friday and there was usually no meat in the house by Thursday night, hence the beans and cornbread. To the OP's point, this is a concept my kids know nothing about. Still one of my favorites though!

I eat CB and beans all the time for sides but sometimes just CB and beans for a meal is all we have . Just me and the wife so no problems with others asking what else . Oh I might get a big chunk of yellow onion for a side wink .
