DIRECTIONS

  • Place the beans and 6 cups water in a large Dutch oven.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat, cover and allow the beans to sit for 1 hour.
  • Drain the beans; clean and dry the pot.
  • Cook the bacon and ham in the Dutch oven over medium heat until the fat renders and the pork is lightly browned, 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the drained beans and 6 cups water; bring to a simmer.
  • Decrease heat to med-low, cover, and cook until the beans are just soft, about 1 hour.
  • Stir in the tomato puree, taco sauce, sugar, mustard, and 2 teaspoons salt.
  • Continue to simmer, uncovered, until the beans are completely tender and the sauce is thickened, about 1 hour (if the mixture becomes too thick, add water).
  • Stir in the cilantro and vinegar and season with salt to taste.
  • Serve.
