How to Make Borracho Baked Beans

Step-by-Step

  • 1Soak uncooked beans for 1 hour. Drain/rinse and set aside. In a saucepan add fresh garlic, dried ancho chili pods, and salt/pepper to taste.
  • 2Add just enough water to cover chili pods. Simmer until soft. Save 1/4 c of ancho juice to add in the blender.
  • 3In the blender add cooled contents and puree. Strain/add contents in a bowl and set aside.
  • 4Place uncooked beans in a 6 quart crockpot add enough water to cover the beans. Cook for 2 hours on medium.
  • 5When the 2 hours has passed then add onions, salt, garlic, chicken bouillon, chorizo, cumin, oregano, and cinnamon.
  • 6Cook for another 2 hours and add water if needed.
  • 7Add rum, brown sugar, strained chili puree, and cook for the remaining 2 hours. I separated the cooking times to slowly build up the flavors and to help the brown sugar/ rum to slightly thicken.
  • 8Serve in a bowl and garnish with queso fresco.
