How to make it
- Rinse and drain the dried beans thoroughly.
- Cover the beans with water in a medium saucepan and leave to soak for a couple hours or overnight.
- Sliver the garlic and chop the onion finely.
- Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy frying pan and lightly cook the onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes over medium heat until the onion is translucent.
- Add the chipotle pepper, if using.
- Add the cooked onions and garlic to the beans in the saucepan and bring to a hard boil over high heat.
- Boil for five minutes, then turn the heat to very, very low.
- Barely simmer for 2-3 hours, until the beans are tender, checking from time to time to see if they are drying out.
- Season at the end of cooking with salt and pepper.
- When the beans are tender eat with fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top. These have a sweet, smoky flavor that let them stand well on their own as a simple dinner dish.
