Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Dried black beans
  • 1 Ham hock
  • 2 c Chopped onion
  • 3 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 7 c Chicken broth
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tb Red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c Dry sherry


Chopped green onions
1 Lime unpeeled and thinly
Diced ham
Shreaded cheddar cheese

Rinse and pick over beans. Cover beans by about 4" of water & let stand
overnite. (If you use the canned ones, you don't have to do this).

In a large pot saute onions and garlic in a splash of broth, sherry or
water, until onions are translucent.

Drain beans & rinse with clean water. Add beans & broth to onions, bring
to boil & add ham hock & cayenne. Partially cover and simmer, stirring
occasionally until beans are tender, 2-4 hours (unless you use canned
beans, then maybe 15-30 minutes).

Remove & cut up ham hock. Remove & puree 1/2 the beans and stir them back
in adding vinegar & sherry. Serve hot over rice and pass the garnishes.

Warm rye bread is a lovely complement.
