I've been looking for a good ol' fashion pinto bean recipe and this one can't be beat. I had to work, so I had my son add the ingredients to a slow cooker (2 hrs on high, then simmer on low for about 4 or 5 hours). This cut down on the worry about managing a simmering stock pot all day, as he is sometimes not the most attentive cook when there are all those video games to play. I also decided to use 2 ham hocks -- how can you deny all of that "hammy" goodness. The end result was absolutely wonderful! My son was so inflated with pride, he was strutting around the kitchen like the Iron Chef, planning his next cooking adventure -- I just hope it involves a slow cooker too.
