    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak your beans. (This very important if you want tender beans). Bring beans to boil in 8-10 cups of water. Remove from heat covered. Let the beans soak for 30-45 minutes until the beans start to swell from the water infusing into them.
    2. 2
      Strain the beans. Bring another 8 cups of water to a boil. (The reason for this is to get all the excess dirt and debris out of the beans).
    3. 3
      While beans are boiling, trim the ham hocks of fat; leave fat in large pieces. Cut the meat into small bite-size pieces. Put all into pot. Remove fat and bones when your beans are done.
    4. 4
      Chop all veggies into small pieces. Combine veggies, meat, fat, and spices into large stock pot or dutch oven and simmer for at least 2 1/2 hours. Remove fat when finished. Taste, add more seasoning if needed.

      Very good! Everyone loved them! Felt the directions were a bit fuzzy, for instance when do you add the chicken stock, I didn't....just the water and beer. Thanks for a great pot of beans, this is a keeper.

      This makes a very nice pot of beans but technically they are NOT Borracho Beans. Borracho in Spanish means "drunk" and these beans have no beer in them. Use a can of beer in place of some of your water and you will have true, savory, Borracho Beans.
