In a stockpot, cook beans with water, garlic, and salted ham/enduie until fully cooked. This may take about 2 - 2 hours and 30 minutes.
When the beans are cooked, in a saucepan, heat oil, add minced garlic, onions, peppers, and chicken bouillon. Let mixture fry for about 2 minutes. Before adding beans, measure beans water. You need 4 cups of liquid for 2 cups of Bulgar Wheat. If beans water is not enough, add hot water. Add beans water and any additional water to saucepan and bring to a boil. When water starts to boil, add bulgar, hot pepper if using, salt and pepper to taste. Wait until water has almost evaporated to lower heat and cover. Let Bulgar Wheat cook for 25 - 30 minutes. Make sure the Bulgar Wheat is fully cooked and fluffy. Serve hot with a side dish.
Soaking time not added.
Not all bulgur wheat need soaking - read the instructions on the packaging. Every brand is different.
