Actually this recipe was from my son in Tuscon,AR. He called them his "KA-BOY TOTTERS"
He had a great sence of humor.
And he was a pretty good cook...I am so glad I have a few of his recipes.
I haven't made this in awhile...But it is pegged to make again very soon.
A friend of his worked at a restaurant in Ariz.and passed this recipe down to him...
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
It is truly delicious!

How to Make ARIZONA COWBOY BEANS - from scratch

Step-by-Step

  • 1Rinse beans under cold rinning water and discard any stones or shriveled beans.
    **Hint: Take the pork hock and inclose it in a clean piece of cheese cloth.
    Tie it into a bag. This will keep the skin bones, and meat together, and not running wild in the beans.
    In a 4 quart saucepan,combine beans,hock in bag,
    onion,chiles with their liquid, oregano and salt.
    Add water 1 inch above beans.
    Heat to a boiling over high heat.
    reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 1-1/2 hours.
    Stirring occasionally,adding more water as needed.
    Add 1-1/2 cups of more water to saucepan, cover and simmer 2 hours longer, or until beans are tender and liquid has thickened.Stirring occasionally,and adding more water as necessary to prevent sticking.
    With a slotted spoon,transfer ham hock to a cutting board.
    Cut and pull meat from the hock and finely chop
    (ONLY THE MEAT)...discard bones,fat and skin.
    Stir meat into beans and serve.
    Corn bread goes well with this dish.
    And hot sauce on the side...as needed.
    ** I think next time I will try to adjust
    this recipe for crockpot cooking.
