- Place the pinto beans into a slow cooker, and fill to the top with hot water. Add the bacon, 2 tablespoons of salt, jalapeno and onion. Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, adding water as needed, until beans are tender.

Drain and rinse with cold water for 1 minute. Add to the beans when they are soft, and cook for 15 more minutes on High.

I mentioned to Carlos that they don't have a lot of flavor and he said "No they don't. That is the way they are!" I added 1/2 the jar and heated it up. Really good! The cactus by itself, tastes like pickled green beans. I will of course make this again. Thank You Katz002."
