Boil hamhocks and beans med heat for 2 hour adding all seasonings except onion.

After the beans and seasoning cook tender add onion. mashing some of the beans on the side with a wooden spoon of the pot to make them creamy.

this would be the time to remove the chipotle pepper for a milder dish. If left it in, resulting in a spicy dish of beans. cook beans 10 more mins on low heat.

Serve with cornbread . you can also use the hamhocks as your meat side dish.
