1 bag of pork rinds
1 small can of pickled sliced jalapeņos

Fry of the salt pork. Dice the onion and add to the salt pork cook over medium heat until clear. Add garlic. Let simmer a few minutes.

Add the beans, rotel, japs and the pork rinds. Bring to a boil, turn to low and let simmer for an hour or 2.

Salt and pepper to taste. Add any brisket/pork trimmings that you might have. You can lessen the heat somewhat by draining the japs first.
The pork rinds sound like a nice touch. Are they for flavor or thickening, or both? I make a similar dish with canned beans only using my favorite Texas beans.

You can get them with jalapeno's too. One thing I do different is add beer and cook down some.
