DIRECTIONS

  • Place all ingredients; the beans with their soaking liquid, the chorizo, ham, pork fat or bacon, ham hock (if using), onion, garlic, green peppers, tomato sauce, olive oil, in a 6-quart pot, cover with broth and water.
  • 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.
  • Add the potatoes, turnips and collard greens, and simmer 15 minutes longer, until all vegetables are soft.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and Sazon Completo & Sazon con Azafran to taste.
  • 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.
