  3. Soak the beans for 4-12 hours.
  4. Drain the beans and return to pot.
  5. Add the 5 1/2 cups of water, onions, and the bouillon granules. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  6. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add the chicken or pork chops, garlic, chili powder, and cumin to the pot.

  9. Remove the chicken or pork chops from the soup to cool slightly.
  10. Add the undrained tomatoes and cook for 30 minutes until the beans are soft and the soup is thick.
  11. Remove the meat from the bones and cut into bite-sized pieces or tear into shreds.
  12. Add the meat to the pot and raise the heat slightly to return the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are well blended.
  13. Top each serving with scallions and cilantro. Serve hot.
