  1. Place the pinto beans into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand overnight to soak.
  2. Drain and rinse the following day, then place beans into a slow cooker along with 4 cups of water, the jalapenos, tomatoes, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, liquid smoke, and barbeque sauce; stir well.
  3. Set the slow cooker to High and cook for 4 hours. Stir the beans again, and turn the slow cooker to Low, and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened and the beans are tender, about 3 hours more.

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!
