1 1/2 Ounce(s) Milk chocolate, small pieces
1 Tomato paste, 6oz ea
2 Tablespoon(s) Vinegar
3 Teaspoon(s) Lemon Juice
1 Soft tortilla, chopped
Place the rinsed beans in a bowl, add 2 to 3 cups of water and soak
overnight. Check the beans occasionally and add water as necessary to
keep them moist. Pour the beans and the water in which they were
soaked into a heavy saucepan and add 2 to 3 more cups of water. Bring
to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower heat and simmer, partially
covered, for about 45 minutes, until the beans are cooked but still
firm. Check occasionally and add water if necessary. Drain the beans,
reserving the cooking liquid. Melt the lard in a heavy skillet over
medium heat. Add the beans and lightly fry them in the lard. Set
aside. Melt the drippings in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add
the onion and cook until it is translucent. Combine the sausage and
the beef with all the spices up through the oregano. Add this
meat-and-spice mixture to the pot with the onion. Break up any lumps
with a fork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is very
well browned. Add the reserved bean-cooking liquid to the pot. Stir in
all the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat
and cook, uncovered, for 1/2 hour longer. Stir occasionally. Add water
only if necessary to maintain the consistency of a chunky soup. Taste
when curiosity becomes unbearable and courage is strong. Adjust
seasonings. Converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
