In this recipe for pork with black beans, we use Jamonilla, green bell pepper, fresh herbs, and canned black beans. Some versions suggest blending the mixture, so it becomes more soup-like, but in this recipe, we keep the black beans intact, which gives the dish a thick mixture. 

Jamonilla with black beans is the perfect go-to dish either as a meal itself, or as a side dish with your favorite Mexican dishes such as tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or nachos.

The dish is ready in 30 minutes, however, if you want to use dry beans, you must soak them first, and make them ready the day before use.  



  • Dice the Jamonilla and green bell pepper, mince the garlic and chop the onion and fresh cilantro.  
  • Add oil to a medium-sized pan over medium heat.  
  • Add onion and bell pepper. Cook until softened (approximately 5-8 minutes).  
  • Stir in garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Season with salt and cumin.  
  • Add the Jamonilla and the bay leaves. Cook for 5 minutes.  
  • Combine the black beans (use the liquid from the can as well).  Season with oregano, cilantro, salt, and freshly ground pepper. 
  • Reduce the heat to bring it to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
  • Add the vinegar and stir.  
  • Serve the dish hot with freshly baked bread for dipping. 
  • Enjoy!
