My husband begs for pinto's and cornbread all the time. This one is a winner and by far the best pinto bean recipe I've ever made! I did change it up a little and I will post the way I made it below. I will keep on making it this way for years to come. I have one word for this and that is DELICIOUS! Best served with Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread from this site:
Here is the way I made the beans:
1.Rinse pinto beans off making sure all dirt or anything else is removed from them.
2.Place beans in a big bowl covering them with cold water, make sure water is roughly 3-4 inches above beans so they can expand. Soak them in the fridge overnight for approx 12 hours.
3.Drain water in the morning.
4.Place 4 cups hot water in crock pot with the 2 tsp chicken base and 2 tsp beef base.
5.Place garlic, jalapenos, onion, and cumin powder in the water mixture.
6.Place the beans in the crock pot with the mixture and stir.
7.Top of the bean mixture in the crock pot with two ham hocks placed on either side.
8.Cook on high heat in the crock pot for 2-3 hours.
9.Then place on low heat until supper time, approx 6 hours.
They will come out delicious every time!!
