"Porotos" is Chile's word for "beans". This is a native Chilean dish. My mother-in-law gave me her version, but I like Ruth Van Waerbeek- Gonzalez' (The Chilean Kitchen) version as well, so this is my own, which is an adaptation of the two. Serve Chilean style with fresh bread and a salad of sliced tomatoes and onion drizzled with olive oil. This is a typical autumn and winter dish at our house.(prep time does not include soaking time for beans.)
