Serves 4 to 6

  • 1/2 pound dried black beans, rinsed
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ of a small white onion, chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons Frontera Chipotle Hot Sauce to taste
  • Crumbled queso fresco or salted farmer’s cheese, optional for serving
  1. Put black beans into a medium-large (3-quart) saucepan. Add 1 ½ quarts water, bacon and onion. Heat to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer, partly covered, adding water as needed to keep the liquid level roughly the same, until the beans are tender, 1 ½ to 2 hours.
  2. Stir in salt and hot sauce and simmer 15 minutes longer. Serve in small bowls with a sprinkling of cheese.
