    2       c            Dried black beans
    1                    Ham hock
                         Salt and pepper -- to taste
    1       tb           Oil
    1                    Onion
    2                    Green peppers
    3                    Tomatoes
                         - peeled, seeded and chopped
 
   PLACE THE BEANS in a pot and fill it with water 4 inches above the beans.
   Add the ham hock, cover and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce
   heat to low and simmer for 3 hours. Add water as necessary during the
   cooking so that the beans are always barely covered. Remove cover during
   the last hour and let the liquid thicken a bit. Add salt and pepper at the
   end. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet, add the onion and peppers and
   cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook another minute.
   When it’s time to serve the beans, mix the onion, pepper and tomatoes to
   the beans.
