“I was fed up with searching for tasty slow cooker pinto recipes, so I mixed and matched and came up with my own. This recipe is fresh from bachelorhood, yet so good. Imagine the warm goodness of semi-spicy pintos oozing over steaming brown rice and cheese. It's the perfect combo of flavor and value. Enjoy, and let me know how it can be improved! ”

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; crumble bacon when cool.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan, and stir in pinto beans. Simmer over medium-low heat until the beans soften, about 30 minutes; pour beans and water into a slow cooker. Stir in the bacon and bacon drippings, kielbasa, ranch-style beans, tomato paste, dried onion, apple cider vinegar, pickled jalapeno, sugar, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Set the cooker to Low, and cook until pinto beans are very tender, 9 to 10 hours.
  3. About 5 minutes before serving, stir in chopped green pepper. Serve topped with chopped green onion.

For a dried bean lover like me this is a little bit of heaven! I made this during the big freeze this week and ate it for two of the coldest days EVER in my area (Colorado). When it was all gone my 19 yr old was begging me to make it again RIGHT NOW! I always make recipes exactly as written the first time then play with it if I think it could be improved. NO PLAYING this time around! I'm a retired chef and would have proudly served this in my restaurant.

I followed the recommendations of other users and my own tastes to sub 1 cup diced onion for the dried onion and onion powder, and I used a light kielbasa...as I was short on time I cooked for 2 hours on high and finished for 5 hours on low.... topped with shredded pepper jack and scallions as noted and served over rice.... really a terrific recipe that both my husband and I just loved. Thanks so much!

Yummy! I couldn't really taste any bacon, so that could probably be left out next time. I also used cloves of garlic and a whole onion because that's what I had on hand. This made the house smell great! Served it with tortilla chips and sour cream, easy inexpensive dinner.
