Frijoles a la Charra
This bean soup recipe was delicious, just what I wanted. I made quite a few changes to the recipe as follows.
Quick soak the beans according to the package instructions before putting them, garlic, and salt into the slow cooker.
Cook the beans on high for two hours before adding sauteed bacon, onion, one drained can tomatoes, one pack sazon goya, and 2 jalapenos.
Continue to cook on high for another 2 hours. Turn the heat down to low, add half a can of budweiser beer and the chopped cilantro to cook for an additional half hour.
Before serving, brighten the soup's flavor by adding a squeeze of lime and a few fresh cilantro leaves to each bowl.
The beans were cooked through and yummy!
