Pioneer Woman's Spicy Beans

Wonderful meal on a cold winter day. Serve it over hot, buttered cornbread. We especially like Recipe #83625, which is just the right amount of sweetness to balance all the spicy. Top with grated cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Just a note: many people soak their beans the night before. I prefer to skip that step and think the bean broth is much more tasty when slow cooked for hours. Delicious!

ingredients

directions

  • Rinse beans under cold water, sorting out any rocks/particles.
  • Place beans in a stock pot with the ham hock and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover the pot and simmer for 2 hours, checking occasionally to make sure the water level is fine. Add more water as needed.
  • Then throw in diced onion, red bell pepper, garlic and jalapeno. Cover and continue cooking for another hour or two, remembering to check the water level.
  • Add salt, chili powder (if desired) and pepper, then cover and cook for another 20 to 30 minutes, or until beans are lovely and tender. Serve with cornbread as a meal, or spoon on top of nachos, tacos, etc.
