For the hogao, add enough vegetable oil to a hot pan and fry the white onion together with the red onion and garlic; cook over medium low heat until they begin to have a bright hue. Add the tomato, cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, cool and reserve until use.
For the beans, in an express pot place the previously drained beans, pour enough water to cover, add the onion, garlic and carrot; cook over medium high heat (uncovered) until the water comes to a boil and a medium bubble is observed. Add the banana and cover the pressure cooker making sure it is perfectly closed, put the safety valve, once the pot starts to whistle, cook for 30 minutes.
After the cooking time, let the pot cool down in a jet of cold water. Open the pressure cooker, return the pot to the heat (without lid) and remove the carrot, banana and a little bean broth. Pour the above into a blender and add a tablespoon of hogao. Blend until integrated. Pour the smoothie back into the pot with beans, season with salt and cook for 20 more minutes over medium low heat. Reserve until use.
For the pork rind, pour water into a pot and add the onion, garlic, bay leaf and bacon. Cook over medium-high heat for 35 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and cool. Reservation.
While the pork rinds are cooking, prepare the ground beef. Pour vegetable oil into a hot pan and cook the ground beef with a tablespoon of the hogao that you prepared, season with salt and pepper, keep over medium low heat, stirring constantly for 12 minutes. Reserve until use.
Brown the pork rinds. Pour a little oil in a hot pan, place the pieces of pork rinds and brown over medium low heat for 15 minutes. Drain on absorbent paper and reserve until use.
In the same pan where you fried the chicharrón, fry the Argentine chorizo and the plantain; drain on absorbent paper. Reservation.
Fry the egg in a smaller pan with vegetable oil, season with salt and pepper; try to cover the pan when frying so that the cooking is uniform. Reservation.
It serves! In a plate, place the cooked white rice, the beans with a little broth, the pork rind, the chorizo, the fried banana slices, the fried egg, the ground meat and the avocado. Garnish with cilantro and accompany with arepas and the rest of the hogao.

It is important that when cooking the beans you add the banana once the water has boiled, otherwise the beans may darken.
