Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings
October 13, 2013

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 (use a non-sweet porter or stout). To cook the dish, I browned the onions and bacon together. Then I threw in the beans and other ingredients except for the cilantro. I brought all the ingredients to a boil for a few minutes then reduced the heat and simmered for about 30 minutes. I threw the cilantro in towards the end. I'm sure the slow cook method is better and more authentic, but in a crunch, this was muy delicioso.
