I make a mean pot of Anasazi beans (might even make some tonight).
Anasazi beans have a natural smoky flavor to them so you don't really have to do much other than add some smoked ham hocks and some green chiles (I
I've got a great way of soaking beans too. I just put them in the pressure cooker with enough water to cover and pressure cook them for 3 minutes
(three minutes of pressure after
the pot seals). Then discard the water and dump the beans in the pot you're going to cook them in.
As for spices, I usually add some chile powder and some cayenne pepper and some sliced onions. I do not add cumin though because then it starts
tasting like chili, and it masks the great flavor of the Anasazi beans.
I cook for about 6 hours on low in a dutch oven or crock pot.
ETA - You can add about any other meat to this also (in addition to the smoked ham hocks). I've got a freezer full of pheasants so I'll usually throw
in a pheasant also. Absolutely delicious! Some chicken pieces or a Cornish game hen works also.
