“Pinto beans are simmered with onion, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin and garlic. I love making these beans just because they make the whole house smell so good, and the longer they simmer the better they taste. You could add 1/2 can of beer to make 'borracho' beans. I personally taste-test throughout the entire cooking process and add extra seasoning as I feel it needs it. These beans could simmer all day long; just make sure they have plenty of water to keep the beans covered.”

Directions

  1. Place pinto beans into a large pot and pour in enough water to cover by 2 to 3 inches. Let beans soak overnight.
  2. Drain beans, return to pot, and pour in fresh water to cover; add diced tomatoes, bacon, onion, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 3 hours.
  3. Stir cilantro and salt into bean mixture; simmer until beans are soft, about 1 more hour.

Excellent!!!!! I made them two different times and had friends from Mexico (from different parts of the country) who loved, loved these beans. They asked to take home some of the left overs!!!! Excellent recipe. It was my first time making them!

These are so good. Made the recipe exactly as written and was I happy. I will certainly make these again. Just the right amount of heat from the RO*TELĀ® diced tomatoes & green chilies. Thank you Lyndsay.

excellent recipe! The only thing i changed was i used chicken broth instead of water and cooked the beans in a crock pot all day. Thanks for the great addition to my recipe collection.
