To soak beans quickly, cover them with generous amount of water, cover pot, bring water to boil and boil 2 minutes.

Remove cover and allow beans to sit in the liquid for one hour.

Drain. In hot oil (1-2 Tb.), sauté carrots, onions, celery, and garlic until onions are golden.

Add cumin and jalapenos.

When beans are ready to cook, add ham hocks to beans along with sautéd vegetables, and chicken broth and enough water to cover.

Cook for 1½ to 2 hours, or until tender.

Drain the bean mixture and reserve cooking liquid.

Purée beans and vegetables. Add sherry and lime juice and enough of the reserved liquid to make a thick soup.
