I hear this song EVERY time I make beans. And no, not from my children.
1 package of salt pork
2 cans stewed tomatoes - cut up with kitchen scissor while still in the can (really, I'm not joking)
5-7 fresh roasted green chilis - chopped
(or 2 cans if you can't find fresh)
1 bunch cilantro - chopped
Some people believe you need to soak beans overnight...blah, blah, blah. Not me. Toss your beans and salt pork in a Dutch oven, fill with water. Cook on high heat and boil for the 1st hour. You will need to refill the water a couple of times. After an hour of boiling reduce heat. Put lid on and continue cooking for 6-7 more hours, adding water as necessary. Just before serving add stewed tomatoes, green chilis and cilantro.
They really are that easy.
