Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings

Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings

Lyndsay

"Pinto beans are simmered with onion, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin and garlic. I love making these beans just because they make the whole house smell so good, and the longer they simmer the better they taste. You could add 1/2 can of beer to make 'borracho' beans. I personally taste-test throughout the entire cooking process and add extra seasoning as I feel it needs it. These beans could simmer all day long; just make sure they have plenty of water to keep the beans covered."

Excellent recipe. I used a fresh jalapeno in addition to the spices bc I like them spicy. I only had to cook them for 2½ hrs. I use this method for soaking beans...America's Test Kitchen suggest...

This was okay. It wasn't as flavourful as I would like, and I couldn't really taste the bacon. Plus the beans were still kind of hard.

Great blend of spices and beans. I was short on time so I substituted 2 (15.25 ounce) cans each of prepared, lower sodium pinto beans and kidney beans. I also threw in a bottle of dark beer (u...

I just spent 30 minutes digging flabby bacon out of the pot, fried it up and threw it back in. Otherwise, yummy! 2 1/2 hours was perfect for the beans. I tasted it when I put the bacon back in a...
