    Im making some of my pinto beans tonight and thought I would share the recipe with yall.

    2 cups pinto beans - wash and soak overnight in 8 cups of water
    The next day wash beans again and add 6 cups of fresh water and 1 lb. ham hock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for about 2 hours.

    Then add
    1/2 onion chopped
    2 jalapenos de-seeded and chopped
    1 clove of garlic sliced fine
    Continue to simmer for another 2 hours or until beans are soft. You might need to add a little more water at this point.

    Then add
    1 - 6oz. can of tomato paste
    Kosher salt to taste
    Cracked black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons of sugar
    1 quart sized baggie of leftover smoked chopped brisket
    Continue to simmer for another hour

    Remove from stove and let sit for an hour, then dig in. Enjoy...

    Sounds great. Just a note for those that get a little flatulent(OK fart) a couple drops of liquid Iodine while soaking the beans minimizes the problem. It has something to do with interfering with some enzyme in the beans. Not to much though or you'll get a metallic taste.

    I don't understand.
    What does this mean?

    who is hot and sweaty and sticky and greasy... In a good way,
    And will be posting to Roll Call (I finally got caught and called out! <G>) and if it looks decent at all, Maybe a Q-View of what I've been up to to make me so hot and sweaty and sticky and greasy today! <G>
