DIRECTIONS

  • Wash beans in cool water and pick out any debris.
  • For quick soak method, put beans large pot and cover with warm water, about 2 - 3 inches over the top of the beans. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat, cover and let stand for one hour. Alternately, cover in cool water and let stand overnight.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot, saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until soft and clear in color.
  • Drain beans.
  • Add beans to onion mixture and add chicken stock, water, spices and vinegar.
  • Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until beans are soft. If beans are too soupy, uncover and bring to a low boil to reduce.
  • Serve as a side with mexican dishes, or use in dips, refried, or with rice.
