Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the beans overnight.
  2. Drain, place in a pot, and refill with water to cover the beans and add everything else. Cook very slowly for 4 to 6 hours.
  3. When the beans are done, test for salt and adjust to our preference.
  4. **Note this is an adopted recipe so I'm not going to change it but I've made these a couple of times and would give this as an alternative.
  5. Use half water and half chicken broth to cook your beans in, adding more chicken broth and water as they cook to get the right amount of liquid you want.
  6. Try using chipotles 2-3 instead of the jalapeno peppers.
  7. Use fresh jalapeno peppers instead of the canned.

Great beans- my son is a cop, & I took some to the station, where they disappeared before my very eyes! I'm keeping this one, just as it's posted!!
