Charro Beans

These sound good for a cold winter night.

Charro Beans (Frijoles Charros)

1 pound dried pinto beans
2 large onions, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
4 or 5 fresh jalapenos, stemmed, seeded and diced
6 bacon strips, chopped
1/2 cup chopped, thinly sliced ham
4 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro leaves chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 chicken boullion cube
Salt to taste.

Sort beans to remove rocks and foreign matter. Place beans in colander and rinse under hot water about 2 or 3 minutes. Place beans in large sauce pan and add water.

Add bacon, chopped onion, jalapenos, tomatoes, ham and garlic. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer on low heat until beans are almost done (about 1 1/2 hours)

Add green onions and chopped cilantro. Add bouillon cube and salt to taste. Simmer for another 30 minutes. Serve beans in bowl with both.
