    1. 1
      Place white beans in large pot full of cold water. Bring to a boil; drain.
    2. 2
      Cover beans again with cold water and bring to a boil. Add the bacon and sausage and simmer very slowly over low heat for one hour.
    3. 3
      Heat the olive oil in a separate pan and add the onion. Cook 2-3 minutes and then add the garlic. Mix together and remove to a flameproof casserole. Add the white beans drained, the bacon, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup water. Cook very slowly until the beans are done, as long as two hours, depending on the beans.

      I guess I used the wrong chorizo because after the hour of cooking there was nothing left to take out to fry. I sauteed the onion and garlic and added it to the bean pot with all the liquid and let it cook until the beans were done. It took a lot longer than the 10-20 minutes stated (more like 2 hours). I'm still going to give it 5 stars because the flavor is out of this world. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8- Spain/Portugal.
