Southwestern Mayocoba Beans

This makes a good side dish, or, if you add sausage, it could be a main dish.  Especially good with a Tex-Mex meal or brisket/chicken off the grill.  Consider serving with warm tortillas or cornbread!


  • 1 lb dry Mayocoba beans (soak overnight)
  • 1/4 lb salt pork or bacon, cut in small pieces
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs minced galic
  • 2 tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbs chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano (Mexican oregano if possible)
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Soak the beans overnight and then rinse
  2. Mix all ingredients together in 9 cups of water
  3. Place in crockpot and cook all day over low heat.
