Ingredients:1 lb beans
10 c water
3 Tbsp lard or oil, divided

1 Tbsp salt + to taste
1 sprig epazote (optional)

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 c tomatoes, seeded and chopped (or 12 oz canned chopped)
4 serrano chilis, 2 whole and 2 chopped
1/2 c tequila
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Preparation:Simmer beans with 1 Tbsp of the fat about 2 hours or until soft, adding 1 Tbsp of salt and epazote after the first hour.
Drain beans, reserving 1 c of the broth.

In 2 Tbsp fat, cook whole chilis over very high heat until browned and blisterd. Reserve.

Cook onion, tomatoes, chopped chilis and a little salt until soft and fat rises to the surface, about 10 minutes.

Notes:This recipe scales easily, and is quite good in its vegan form.
