  • Soak beans overnight in the water OR bring to boil then let stand for 1 hour; drain.
  • Cook bacon in heavy, large pot over medium heat until golden brown and crisp, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
  • Mix in garlic, celery, carrot, onion, jalapeño and bay leaf.
  • Cook until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  • Add chili powder, cumin, cayenne and pepper.
  • Stir until aromatic, about 1 minute.
  • Add beans and broth.
  • Cook at a slow boil until beans are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • I have used more broth to make it a soup.
  • Season with salt.
  • Mustard's serves these beans topped with chopped red onions, a dollop of sour cream and chopped chives.
