Pinto Beans

This recipe is so easy! And it’s delicious to boot. 


  • 1 pound dried pinto beans, rinsed and separated.
  • 5 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (more if you like things spicy)


  1. Soak the beans overnight.
  2. Drain beans, then place all ingredients into a stock pot. Cover with 2 inches of water.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for about 4 hours. Add more water as necessary.
  4. Once the beans are soft (but not mushy), increase the heat in order to reduce the liquid to a thick broth.
  5. Taste and adjust seasoning.
