In the sense 'stew', a deverbal derivation of Old French harigoter (to in slice pieces), of Frankish origin.

In the sense 'bean', etymology uncertain. Influenced in form by the 'stew' word, if not originally identical to it; in that case possibly from Mexican Spanish ayacotli, or possibly from Calicut.
