  1. Take a large saucepan and add 6 cups of water and beans. On a high flame bring it to a boil.

  4. Stir and fry them for 5-6 minutes or until they get tender and soft.

  6. Add the cocoa and Modelo beer and give a good mix. Cook it until the watery thickens the gravy. It will take approximately 4-5 minutes. Stir in between and scrape to avoid browned bits at the bottom. Sift it to slow cooker.

  7. In slow cooker, add 4 cups of water and bay leaves. On top of the beans scatter the diced potatoes. Avoid mixing here. On low cover the slow cooker and cook it for next 8 hours.

  8. From slow cooker take 2 cups of soup and sift it to blender. Make sure you are not taking beans or potatoes. Cover the blender and make a fine puree of the soup. Cover the blender with a kitchen towel to avoid splatter. Sift the puree to slow cooker and pour over the dish.

  9. Add the salt and vinegar to slow cooker. Take bay leaves out of the slow cooker and discard them.

  10. Transfer from slow cooker to serving bowl. Garnish the dish with sour cream, avocado and cilantro leaves.
