Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings
September 15, 2015

This was good, AFTER I severely altered how it's made. First, COOK the bacon (throwing bacon into boiling water just results in RUBBER). Remove bacon from pan, saving fat. Add all the dry spices and 2 chopped onions, NOT just one. Cook all over medium heat. You may need to add a bit of water so you can glaze the pan and get all the roasted spices to not stick... THEN add these ingredients to your beans which soaked overnight. Also, I didn't have the canned tomatoes with green chilies, but I did have a big jar of chunky salsa...which, if you read the ingredients are exactly the same. The cooking and browning of the bacon, spices and onions really brings out the flavor 100 fold over just tossing them into the boiling water.
