Directions
  1. Chop bacon into medium dice add to a large pot and very slowly cook until the fat melts off

  2. Small dice the onion and mince the garlic and add to the pot, stir often and cook until clear, take care and do not burn garlic

  3. Fine dice the serrano pepper and add to the pot and cook slightly just to sweat

  4. Take butchers string and tie around the fresh thyme so the stems can be removed after cooking and add to the pot

  5. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the chopped meat and beans then reduce by half until the mix coats a spoon

  6. TIP make sure when the liquid is added you stir and clean the bottom of the pot to prevent sticking and burning

  7. Keep the mixture moving, stirring often

  8. Last add the beans and chopped meat, stir and simmer for about 20- 30 minutes

  9. Be careful not to break up the beans, you want them whole and not mashed up, make sure the heat is at a low simmer
