   ~ Wash beans, soak them in water overnight. ~ In the
   same water, bring beans to a boil and add onion. Let
   boil for about 1 hour, adding more water as it
   evaporates. ~ When beans are almost done, add 4
   tablespoons lard or oil and salt to taste. Let cool
   for 3 hours. ~ Bring back to the boil. Add remaining
   lard or oil and chiles de arbor. When beans begin to
   come apart and broth has become muddy, the beans are
   done. ~ Lard-less beans are called “Frijoles de la
   Olla”
