Southern Style Butter Beans

Southern Style Butter Beans

1 bag of butter beans

1/2 onion

3 cloves of garlic

3 strips of bacon

1 tsp oregano

1tsp black pepper

1tsp onion powder

1tsp cumin

2 hot chilies

2 cans of chicken stock (or homemade chicken stock if you have it)

~1 cup of soaking liquid

1tbsp salt

Rinse and soak the beans in warm water. I let mine soak for a few hours then rinsed them and added more hot water while I prepared the rest. You can also let them soak overnight. Just be sure to rinse them before adding to your vegetables.

Dice up the bacon and cook it on medium low for about 5 minutes to render the fat. Add the onions and cook for another 5 minutes. When onions begin to look clear add the garlic.

Cook for another 2 minutes. Add all seasoning cook for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook until beans are soft.

This is where the picture of finished beans would be. However, I brought these to school and didn’t think to take a picture of them while there. Maybe when we eat the leftovers.
