Homemade Pork and Beans

We love beans at our house.

This one takes some some to soak the dry beans, but the flavors you get from them as opposed to canned is well worth the wait!

Soaking the beans before you cook them helps to soften them and speed up the cooking time. Some people drain the water and add fresh, but I use the same water. Be sure to bring it to a rolling boil to kill any bacteria that may have settled over night.

Here’s How to Do it:


Bring the beans, onions and chilis to a boil. Turn off heat, cover and let sit overnight.

Add the remaining ingredients to the pot. Bring it to a boil and let cook for about 20 – 30 minutes. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for about 2 to 3 hours, or until the beans are soft.

Remove the whole herbs and pequins (if you can find them).

Serve garnished with sour cream, chili slivers and fresh chive leaves.
