  1. Place the pinto beans into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand overnight to soak.

Amazing beans! Please don't let the reviews that say this is too spicy keep you from trying this great recipe...just adjust it to your own won't be sorry. I am from NM, so I have chile running through my I always have NM roasted green chile in my I added about 4-5 chopped green chiles and the result was wonderful! I do like jalapenos, but I prefer using green chiles...thanks for submitting this great and easy recipe!

Hot as Hell is right! Holy WOW! These have great flavor but I do recommend cutting back on the jalapeno peppers if you want to be able to taste that great flavor instead of tasting what a tongue engulfed in flames tastes like. Again, excellent flavor and we do like hot but I will scale down on the peppers a bit next time. Thanks for the great recipe Flyineggbeater!

Great, great recipe. I did not soak ours overnight. I put the dried (washed) beans in my pressure cooker with 4 cups of water and cooked on high for 30 minutes. Perfect texture. Next I added in 1 can RoTel diced tomatoes with habaneros (hot) undrained, 1tsp salt, 1tsp black pepper and 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. The onion powder, garlic powder and liquid smoke as written. Boy, these babies are HOT!
