You can take a man out of the south but you can't take the south out of the man. It is the day after the Super Bowl and I need to get back to eating healthy. Laughing

We will start with a Pinto Bean Soup.

Soaked Pintos
A Large Ham Hock
Chopped Onion
Diced Serrano Pepper
Seeded and Diced Jalapeno
1/2 tbs Minced Garlic
1/2 tbs Ground Cumin
1/2 tbs Chili Powder
2 pinches Mexican Oregano
1 can Mexican Stewed Tomatoes
1 can Diced Tomatoes
Cracked Black Pepper
Kosher Salt







Meanwhile I will wash up some collard greens.



I cooked the ham bone in all ingredients except the beans for 1.5 hours and the pulled the ham. Returned the ham, the bone and the beans to the pot. A nice yield from the hock.



Prepping the pan for some fried cabbage. That's low fat slat meat. Shocked



Dusted up some wings with The Slabs Bird and Bones.



Prepping myself to man the grill on a nice 60 degree midwestern winter day.



Wings coming in from the Weber.



It's about time to enjoy the fruits of the labor. Pinto Bean Soup, Fried Cabbage, Collard Greens, Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread, Grilled Wings, Modello Especial and a little Patron with a splash of Patron Citronge. A very enjoyable day off after a great Super Bowl Sunday of partying.

Good looking meal, and excellent choice of beverages! Cool

Just a tip (as I love my greens) float them in that sink full of water- the sand will sink to the bottom. Wink

I had 2 bowls of those beans and crumbled cornbread in both! Very Happy

Thanks to all for looking in! BBQMAN thanks for the tip. I was subbing in on the greens, my wife is the normal greens cook. It was a bit unusual for us to just do collards. Often she mixes collards, mustards and spinach together. It was a fine meal....I've got a batch of leftovers that might go with a pork chop or fried chicken this weekend.

that's a good looking Tex-Mex style bean recipie....
next time try adding a few tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro... but only if you like it...
cilantro is like Scotch Whisky.... some do... some dont.
also you can play with various different dried chiles.. more or less...or none. same w/ comino and paprika.
adding a beer to it makes for frijoles borracho, but they tend to sour when saved for later eating. JMO...
beans is fun to experiment with, acct if you dont like the outcome, you aint out too much dinero..
BTW, salt pork is cheap, but good ol' hog jowls are better.
smoked hocks , even better.
and yeah, im'a liken' a big ol' bowl of pinto beans w/somma cornbread, butter and blackstrap molassas....or corn tortillas and picante.. or flour tortillas w/a lil' butter and light salt....maybe some deer sausage or coonace shrimp gumbo... or.. steamed swiss chard/ fresh spinach and tobassco... BTW dont ferget to bake a batch of pecan sandie cookies. use thet double strenght vanailla, too.
que mas quieros.
