    jaynine's Note:

    This originally came from a friend of mine, and I tweaked it just a little. Make sure you use a good full-bodied beer in this, not a light beer. I used Michelob Ultra Amber, and the smell while it was cooking was wonderful. The Goya ham seasoning is a dry mix, picture of a pig on the box, usually near the soups. I guessed on the size of the packet because it was required to submit - the box is 1.41 oz and it contains 6 or 8 packets. Prep/cook time does not include soaking beans overnight.

      Outstanding!!!!! I use Guinness beer and 1 LB of bacon. I slow cook all the ingredients (except the cilantro) in a crock pot without pre-soaking beans for around 8 hours. I now serve this everytime with my Acacia smoked brisket....all friends leave fat and happy!!! Thanks again for this recipe.

      This was a big hit at a party the other night got 5 stars from everyone. I doubled the recipe and glad I did there was nothing left for anyone to take home. Have passed the recipe on to others already.
