CUBAN BLACK BEANS
This is my Mother's favorite black bean recipe. I think she got it from an old Cuban cookbook. Her note is: "flavorful!" Cooking time doesn't include soaking time.

- Wash beans.
- In a large pot, soak the beans with the first chopped bell pepper in water until swollen. Overnight?.
- **It doesn't say so but I'd drain it at this point and add new water so the beans won't be so musical if you know what I mean.**.
- Cook until soft about 45 minutes.
- Heat oil in a medium pan. Add onion, second bell pepper and garlic and cook until soft.
- Add 1 cup of cooked beans and mash them well. Add mixture to bean pot.
- Add dry seasonings to the pot.
- Cover and boil 1 hour.
- Add vinegar and wine.
- Cover and simmer 1 hour.
- If broth is too watery, uncover and cook until it thickens.
- Just before serving stir in the olive oil.
CUBAN BLACK BEANS
This classic recipe is adapted from "Tastes Like Cuba," by Eduardo Machado and Michael Domitrovich. The secret is the homemade sofrito, but bottled will do in a pinch.

- Cut 1 green pepper into 1-inch squares. Smash and peel 4 of the garlic cloves. Put the green pepper and garlic into a large pot with the beans, ham hock, bay leaves and 1 tablespoon salt. Add 2 quarts water and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and simmer until the beans are tender, an hour or more.
- Meanwhile, make a sofrito. Cut the remaining ½ green pepper into ¼-inch dice. Peel and finely chop the remaining garlic. Heat the olive oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the green pepper and onion and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeño (leave out the seeds if you don't want it too spicy), oregano, cumin, black pepper and 2 teaspoons salt and stir for another minute. Pour in the vinegar and scrape any browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. This is your sofrito.
- When the beans are cooked, discard the bay leaf. Remove and set aside the ham hock and let it cool. Transfer 1 cup of beans to small bowl, mash them into a paste with the back of a fork and return to the pot. Add the sofrito, then the sugar. Pull the meat from the ham hock, leaving behind any white sinew or gristle. Chop the ham into ½-inch pieces and return it to the bean pot.
- Stir the beans well and bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or so, skimming any foam from the top. Taste for salt and serve with white rice.

CUBAN STYLE BLACK BEANS WITH BACON
I started experimenting with black beans awhile ago. I tried a bunch of Cuban recipes and although most were very good, I wanted the dish to look as good as it tasted. This dish combines complimentary flavors to the beans while adding tons of color. I usually serve this dish alongside rice. If you have time you can cook your own beans in a pressure cooker, but canned beans work fine too. If jalapenos are too spicy for you, you can substitute Anaheim peppers instead.
