  • 1
    Rinse the beans and let them soak in water for at least a day before the preparation, so that they can soften. Don’t throw away the water; you’ll need it to cook later.
  • 2
    The next day, add the beans in a pressure pot and the rest of the ingredients and cook for about 1 hour. *If you use a traditional pot, cook for at least 3 hours at low temperature.

More About This Recipe
  • One of the Colombian dishes I love the most includes beans with bacon, quite a tradition back home. It’s a tasty dish perfect to enjoy with other dishes, like the famous bandeja paisa. I love these frijoles with any accompaniment, especially with a serving of white rice and plantains.
