DIRECTIONS

  • Sort beans to make sure there are no small rocks.
  • Place beans in large pan and fill with water to within a few inches of the top. Soak beans overnight, or bring to a boil and let sit, covered, off heat for one hour. Drain and rinse beans.
  • Refill pot with water. There should be about 3 cups of water per each cup of beans.
  • Add bacon grease, cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Turn down to simmer and cook about 4-5 hours, or until beans are fairly tender.
  • Add remaining ingredients, cover and bring to a boil again. Then turn down to simmer and cook one more hour. Adjust spices to your liking.
  • Once beans are tender, you can remove the lid and continue cooking to make the beans less soupy if you prefer.
  • Serve with other burrito fixings like taco meat, cheese, onions, tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, olives, etc.
