I've modified the original recipe with a few additions after researching authentic recipes.
The Main addition is coffee and tomatoes.
I'm not a cook that weighs things so it's to taste or by judgement.
I used 2 packs (1kg of Pinto Beans, you can substitute for other beans if you wish)
I wanted to used smoked ham hocks but it's difficult get hold of so I got around a pound of trimmings of dried cured smoked bacon. And used two normal ham hocks.
I used a quick soak method to start the beans.
Then added the ham and covered with water.
The ham was not done by the time the beans had softened so I removed the ham. Strained the bean and reserved the beans for adding back in later. I trimmed the Skin and fat from the ham and returned the ham to the pot with the liquid. I fried up the bacon onion and spices. When the ham was done I pulled it apart, added the beans bacon and spice mix along with the coffee and beans then simmered for a further hour.
When this cools it does thicken and almost set but it does liquefy again when rewarmed.
