    Manami's Note:

    Loosley based on various recipes I found on the internet but it is with Jesus Tarifa's, our chef here at the home, help and guidance that brought the recipe to post. It brings back a lot of fond memories but when it was made in our home in Cuba it was made with bacon and chorizos only! It is a robust soup that is hearty and delicious! It is a whole meal and is wonderful! It hails from Spain but the Cubans adopted it as their own, as they have with many of their recipes. Here, we have made it with collard greens but it can be made with Swiss chard, kale, or even spinach. These beans do better if soaked overnight.

      Cover the pot and simmer slowly for 30 minutes. Add seasonings and simmer for about 1-1/2-2 more hours, until the beans are almost tender.

      Skim the froth and scum that comes to the top.

      Season to taste.
    5. 5

      Serve in deep soup bowls with a side of white fluffy rice (a necessity for Cubans), with sliced avocados, and tomatoes, with a vinaigrette dressing, a warm loaf of Cuban (pan de flauta) bread or French baguette or even with a Focaccia.
