Number of Servings: 8


    1 pound dried black beans
    4 cups of water
    3 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
    1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
    pound salt pork, chopped
    1 pound smoked ham hocks, cut in 1 inch pieces
    2 teaspoons paprika
    3 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 bay leaves
    4 cups chicken stock
    teaspoon chili powder
    1 tablespoon vinegar
    salt and pepper to taste (I don't use any additional seasonings)


Place black beans and water in large stock pot. Cover and boil two minutes. Turn off heat and let stand covered for 1 hour.

Remove the lid and add the rest of the ingredients, except the vinegar, salt and pepper. There should be enough water to just cover the beans, so if necessary add a bit or water. Cover and simmer until the beans are tender, about 2 hours. Take out the hocks and remove the bones. Return the meat to the pot. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper. Simmer long enough to heat the vinegar.
