How to make cajeta the easy way:

1.  Soak or blanch beans.
2.  Peel label from a can of sweetened condensed milk.  Spend 5 minutes scraping the glue off the can with a paring knife.  Wash the can well.  If my mom washes every can before opening I can bring myself to wash this one.
3.  Place can and beans in pot, cover with cold water.
4.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer until done, approximately 1 hour.
5.  Remove can allow patiently to cool completely.
6.  Open, and enjoy cooking magic.
