How to Make Frijoles Bororacho's (Drunk Beans)


  1. Soak cleaned pinto beans in cold water in large pot.
    Make sure water level is 2 inches above beans.
  2. While beans are soaking, chop onion. Cut salt pork into 1 inch pieces. Or you can leave them whole. Drain sliced jalapeno's and put in a cup.
  3. After beans are soaked add chopped onions, salt pork, and pepper and bacon drippings. Bring to a boil. After the beans are boiling good, turn down to low. Let them cook for at least an hour and half and then add the jalapeno's(use 1/4 cup or less for those who don't like hot peppers). Add one beer and if extra needed add from other bottle of beer. Let beans cook till soft about 3 to 4 1/2 hours. When almost cooked add fresh chopped cilantro. Serve in bowls or on side of plates with the meal.
