Equipment

  • 6-8 quart pot

Ingredients
  

  • 1 med Onion
  • 3 cloves Garlic-minced
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 LB Dried Black beans, rinsed well, check for stones, etc
  • 3 cups Beef Broth, i use un-salted
  • 3 cups Water
  • 1 cup Smoked ham. 2-3 Smoked ham hocks are better if you can find them
  • 1 med green pepper, i like using orange or yellow for the color contrast
  • 1 large Tomato. I use a can of Ro-Tel instead. This will kick the spice a little more.
  • 1/4 cup Dark Rum–Meyer's is what i use.
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cumin ground
  • 1 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1 Habanero pepper–i sometimes use i canned chipotle pepper. It's more smokey tasting and not as hot.

Instructions
 

  • 1) Saute onions 3 minutes,
    2) Add in garlic, stir for 30 seconds.
    3) Add in all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
    4) Reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 2 hours.
    NOTE: THE BEANS DO NOT NEED TO BE PRE-SOAKED.
