"This is a mock pecan pie, which is quite similar to pecan pie, except that it uses pinto beans instead of pecans."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This pie is great, especially for nut lovers (like me) who cannot eat nuts anymore...doctor's orders. :o(
my familys loves this pie i love it its easy to make.there are no leftovers here its not to sweet and not heavy light to taste good not only for the hollidays but for anytime i am going to make one for the new year for work i better make two :) thank you for sharing i am mailing it on to my sisters in fl thank you :)
Made this for the 1st time for Thanksgiving 2010. It was nice. next time i make it (and i shall) i will use less sugar (just a bit too sweet for me). Nethertheless it was good.
I baked this pie in early1970,ever one thought it was pecan,i had lost my recipe,so now i can fool some more people,It was printed in the Lubbock Texas paper along with a lot more bean recipes,i just lost my whole paper when we moved.
I prefer the real thing, not mock pecan pie.
I would've given this 5 stars if it added pecans! However even without pecans it would have been yummy (especially for people who have nut allergies but some crunch factor really makes a difference). I reduced the sugar by 1/3 and it was sweet enough, would make this again.
If I had mashed up the beans better, I think this would have been a bigger hit. However my sons figured out it was different, so they were already assuming they would not like it. Would try this again if I could figure out a substitute for the dark corn syrup that my diabetic DH can consume.
Fantastic, try it you'll like it.
