Neighbors made it for us

Ingredients You'll Need

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Bay leaf
5 Whole allspice
1 Tablespoon tomato paste(or more if you want more tang to it)
1 Tablespoon pimento paste
1 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Pound smoked bacon(not packaged bacon)
1 Chourico sausage, diced
3 Cups navy beans, soaked and drained
1 Bottle of beer
1 Cup water
1 Tablespoon white sugar


In a skillet on low heat, cook the onion and garlic with butter and oil until they are soft and the onion is transparent. Add bay leaf, allspice, tomato paste,pimento paste and salt. Simmer until all ingredients are blended together, about 5 minutes.

Chop bacon into cubes. Cut sausage into rounds and then slice again into quarters. Add to skillet and fry slowly for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pour drained beans into a large deep pan. Set aside. Add beer to the skillet and bring to a boil. Return to a simmer and add the water. Cook about 3 minutes longer, then pour mixture into the beans and stir. Add sugar.

Pour beans in slow cooker and turn it to high for about 8 or 9 hours.

Serve with a nice crusty bread. If you like you could add some red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit or select a spicy chourico for some heat. It is also great served over noodles.
