Mild Bill's Competition Bean Recipe
2 16oz Cans Bush Pinto Beans
1 Bone in Ham Steak
½ Can Chicken Broth
1 pkg Jamon Goya
½ tsp Garlic Granules
½ tsp Onion Granules
1 tsp Seasoned Salt
Good grind of Telicherry Pepper and float 2 Serranos (poke holes in them)
In a large soup pot or dutch oven, brown the ham (use the juices). When the ham starts to carmelize, add the remaining ingredients (including the serranos) and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until beans are tender. Adjust seasonings to taste; serve with or without ham. You can squeeze the Serrano peppers in the beans for more heat, or discard for lighter palettes!
*The spices in this recipe can be doubled and used for 1# of dried beans. You would also need to increase the liquid as well – 1 full can of chicken broth plus enough water to cover the beans while cooking. You would need to also add chicken broth or water as needed.
