  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat. Add the onion, garlic, half the parsley, and the bay leaf and cook until the onion is soft but not brown, about 4 minutes.2. Add the beans, 1/2 cup bean cooking liquid, and the hot sauce to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Using a pestle, potato masher, or the back of a wooden spoon, mash half the beans. Stir in 3 tablespoons manioc flour. Simmer the beans, uncovered, until nice and thick, about 3 minutes.
  2. If it’s too thick, add a little more bean cooking liquid if it’s too thin, add the remaining manioc flour.3. Correct the seasoning, adding salt, pepper, and additional hot sauce, as needed. Sprinkle the tutu with the chopped eggs and remaining parsley and serve immediately.
