Santa Maria Style Pinquito Beans

1 lb. pinquito beans
1 strip bacon, diced
1/2 cup ham, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup tomato puree
1/4 cup red chile sauce
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. salt
(Yields 6 to 8 servings)

Place the dry beans in a strainer and remove any small stones. Then rinse the beans and place them in the pot. Fill pot with water and allow the beans to soak overnight. Drain beans and put fresh water back in the pot with the beans. Simmer for 2 hours or until tender.

Sauté bacon and ham until lightly browned. Add garlic, sauté 1-2 minutes longer. Add tomato puree, chile sauce, sugar, mustard, and salt. Drain most of liquid off beans and stir in sauce. Simmer for a half hour more. Keep warm on low heat until ready to serve.
