Directions

  1. Sort and wash the beans. Cover with water to a depth of 2" over beans, bring to a boil, cook 3 minutes. Turn off heat, cover and let stand 1 hour. Drain.
  2. Return to the pot and add water, bay leaf, onion, garlic, celery, carrot, salt, pepper, tomatoes, and cloves. I sometimes saute the onion, garlic and celery before adding. Simmer until beans are tender, about 2 hours. Add parsley, chili powder, cumin, lemon juice, and hot sauce.
  3. Cook, uncovered, 15 minutes. Top each serving with cheese. Enjoy!
