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.

I think these are delicious but of course this is a totally biased opinion. :)

This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Joan, who got it from her neighbor. It is deceptively simple, but so good. I just took it to a potluck and got rave reviews: 'These beans are awesome!'

Use a slow cooker to make this chili with chicken, pinto beans, and corn, flavored with salsa, cumin, and chili powder.

This was good and easy, I make larger amounts of beans and freeze in portions approximate to can size for soups when I have room in the freezer.

Great idea. This would be good for my hubby to take for lunches!

This is a really tasty pinto beans recipe made in the slow cooker. This recipe is great to serve along with enchiladas or to take to a barbecue or potluck.

I have to admit I haven't made this yet with our mild winter, but this sounds really good.

I grew up in Louisiana and love red beans and rice, these are just like I remember - red beans made with Cajun seasonings and andouille sausage. This is a great Sunday supper.

This is AMAZING! If you use smoked sausage in place of the andouille, it's very cheap to make too :)

A simple slow cooker meal! Pork roast is cooked all day with pinto beans in a seasoned sauce then shredded. Serve on tortillas with sour cream, salsa, and cheese or your favorite toppings.

This is one of my favorites. I use pork loin when it's on sale for $1.99... which is becoming increasingly rare!
