DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and sort beans.
  • Soak beans in the 6 cups water for 24 hours. Do not discard this water.
  • Bring to a strong simmer. cover and continue strong simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until beans are tender.
  • Add salt at this point only. Never before or while cooking. Remove epazote and discard. Keep all cooking liquid.
  • Blend with food processor or stick blender if you are truly cool. I like to leave some chunks for texture. I also recommend using all of the cooking liquid. This is where the flavour lives. The beans may initially be quite thin but will thicken up.
