“An old fashioned 'pot of beans' recipe. It starts with dry pinto beans, onion, and chicken broth. Add green chili salsa, jalapeno and cumin for the spicy kick.” - by Fooddude
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Place the pinto beans in a large pot, and pour in the chicken broth. Stir in onion, jalapeno, garlic, salsa, cumin, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking 2 hours, stirring often, until beans are tender. Add water as needed to keep the beans moist.
