Well, I'm a native Texan and have been making pinto beans for years and years and years and thought I would try something new. Well, my grandma's recipe (which uses tomatoes, bacon, etc.) may have to go on the back burner for awhile because these were fantastic and loved by the entire crowd. I cooked them for several hours until they were nice and tender and followed the recipe exactly using the green salsa. This one is definitely a keeper.

I have made this recipe atleast a dozen times and it comes out awesome every time. My little tweeks: I use canned diced jalapenos to taste and I stick it in the crockpot on low all day. Also, I always soak the beans the night before. Great beans!

Awesome Recipe. I did change a few things just because that is all I had on hand and they still came out with a really good flavor. I substituted onion for an envelope of onion soup mix and jalapeno for a can of green chilies and used pace picante sauce instead of the green salsa. I also added ketchup to the beans just because that is what my mother in law always does. The beans did take longer than two hours to cook though. I will next time follow the suggestion of another reviewer and soak the beans over night. Thanks for such a great recipe!
