My mother is from Brasil (and she spells it with an "S"), so I grew up on this dish. She says that the real, good stuff has Portuguese sausage (linguica), bacon, and fresh pork as well as the ham-hocks. But when she got to the states linguica wasn't easy to be found, so she used pepperoni. Anyway, this recipe is how she made it for us.

NOTE: I prefer smoked ham shanks, which taste the same but have more meat and less fat (the hocks have the skin on, shanks don't). Mom would leave the skin from the ham-hocks floating around in the beans so you could eat that too, but I think that's just nasty.
OR you could use a ham boneŚleftover from a nice ham (like at Christmas time or something)Śto flavor your beans.

This is just a basic, simple recipe. I've seen recipes that use a cup or so of orange juice; recipes that add sauteed onions and garlic at the end (instead of using dried onion); even recipes that add bell peppers and other veggies.

Very quick, very simple, and very delicious! I chose the HyTop brand of Teriyaki sauce because it had the lowest amount of sodium of the choices available at the grocer.

I modified the following recipe to add some protein, using what I already had on hand. Chicken or taco meat or any other meat would be good, too.

This recipe came from my 7th grade cooking class, but I've customized it a little bit, and it's really good.

Craving french fries or tater tots? Try these! At 90 calories and about 15 carbs per serving, it's a reasonable side dish.
