Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Dry Pinto Beans -- soaked
  • Overnight
  • 1 lg Ham Hocks
  • 3 Jalepeno Peppers -- to
  • Taste
  • 1 qt Tomatoes, Canned
  • 5 Garlic Cloves -- to taste
  • 2 md Onions -- finely chopped
  • 1 tb Salt -- to taste
  • 2 tb Chili Powder
  • 1 ts Oregano
  • 1 ts Summer Savory
  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 1 Stalk Celery


Soak the pinto beans in water overnight, or about 6-8 hours. Drain the
water and rinse the beans well.

Simmer the ham hock for about 2 hours in enough water to cover; about 2
quarts. (You could also use a pound of side pork or slab bacon cut into 1
inch chunks.) Remove the meat from the hock and return it to the cooking
pot. Add the pre-soaked and rinsed beans to the pot, along with the rest of
the ingredients. Add enough water or tomato juice to bring the level to
about 4 1/2 quarts total volume. Cover and simmer for about 4 hours, or
longer if you have a slow cooker. Watch the liquid level while cooking so
the beans don't get too dry.

Adjust the hot peppers to suit your taste.
