Pinto Beans

I got this recipe for beans from the Pioneer Woman website.  This is very simple, but it is filling. {print recipe}

Pinto beans

3 cups dried pinto beans

1 onion, chopped

4 slices bacon, diced

salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, dried minced onions, and garlic powder to taste.

Rinse the beans and put in a pot.  Cover with water and bring to a boil for two minutes.  Take off the heat and let it set for one hour.  Drain the water and then fill again with fresh water.  Add the onion and bacon and bring to a simmer.  Let simmer for an hour or so and then add the seasonings to taste.  Let simmer until most of the water is gone and the beans are tender.

Serve with fresh baked corn bread.

  1. Love brown beans! I cook mine in the crockpot. I soak them Saturday morning for about 3 hours, rinse and put them in the crockpot with salt and bacon (sometimes ham hocks). If I want them for lunch on Sunday, I put them to cook at around noon on Saturday.I cook them on low for about 24 hrs. The longer you cook them the better they are :O)
