1/4 pound pork rind (I use salt pork)
1/2 pound pink or pinto beans
1/4 onion, sliced
2 small cloves garlic, sliced
6 cups water

Combine all and cook until done. Taste for salt fifteen minutes before and add a little if needed.

3 thick strips bacon, cut in small strips
2 tablespoons lard or bacon drippings
2 medium tomatoes, diced-I use a can if I can't find good ones
3 chile serranos, finely chopped ( I use jalapenos, but sometimes they don't have much bite)
2 large whole sprigs cilantro, chopped - I use a good half cup packed

Heat lard in skillet, render bacon in it until starting to brown, add remaining ingredients and cook over a fairly high flame 10 minutes or so, until well seasoned. Combine with beans and simmer uncovered on low flame about 15 minutes.
