How to make it

  • Put beans in large pot, and add about 4 quarts of water over high heat.
  • Add bouillon cubes, onion and garlic and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to low heat and add chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and bay leaf. (you can add jalapenos, if you like it spicy.)
  • Simmer over low heat (you want a very slight bubbling), with lid partially over pot, for 2 hours.
  • Add parsley, salt and pepper to taste (I use a couple of Tbs of salt and a couple of Tsps of pepper)
  • If it becomes too salty, add hot water to pot.
  • Great served with Mexican food, or over rice. Awesome with cornbread, as its own meal!
  • Enjoy!
