Get a bag of pinto beans. Look through them and pick out any rocks or bad beans.....soak about 2 cups of non cooked beans (depending on how many you want to fix, dont use the bag all at once, i doesn't look like much before they are cooked) soak them in water (just enough to cover the beans) overnight so they can "swell" add salt, pepper, and cooking oil in the water, and half a block of salt pork (it comes in a small package at any of the local groc. stores).

In the morning drain all of the water off.... u can put them in a crock pot, add enough water to cover the beans, add salt, pepper, a little bit of cooking oil, including the same meat or use the other half left over from the night before. Cook on high all day to be ready for that night, or put them on the stove, bring to a boil then turn down to a stead boil, cook til they are done, usually 5 hrs. They will get done faster on the stove. When the beans are soft and easy to bite into they are done.... if you put them in the crock pot the night before put them on low and then on high in the morning to be ready by lunch. That is traditional soup beans from scratch...... a much easier way....

Buy several cans of Luck's beans depending on the amount you want to fix, i usually get 4 cans to feed about 8 people..... put them in large boiling pot (stock pot) add water (eye the amount... enough to make the beans seem lose when you stir them) add salt, pepper, and about 1/4 cup cooking/veg oil (you dont have to add a meat, these beans already have small pieces in it). Bring to a steamy boil and then turn them down to a steady boil, leave on the stove for about 30 min for flavor....and they are done, remove the fat pieces and serve, they taste very close to homemade from scratch!!

Hope this helps.

excellent way and right. just wanted to mention to ddddddd that you have to watch water level. bean's tend to soak up a lot and some of the water goes away in the form of steam. so if you let them get dry or stick to the bottom of the pan then you will burn them ( scorch ) but you will smell it. nasty odor. keep adding water as you cook them. the bean's should be tender to eat and the juice should be brown and mediun thickness.

pinto beans small bag

rinse them in water, and remove bad beans or rocks ect. I rinse twice.

Put them in a large pot with lots of water, add a entire pack or armour fat back or salt pork
Boil on high heat for about 3 hours.. check to see if beans are soft, with a thick soup. stir occasionally and add water as necessary.

sorry but i'd leave out the pepper i've cooked pinto's all my life and so has my family and thats a fisrt i ever heard of putting pepper in them.I use salt pork and you should put it cold water over night or boil it then wash it before you put in beans or it will make them to salty for you to eat.

easy - pretty much has it covered - but - i dont soak them over night .you do have to clean them and get the rocks out . i chop a big onion . add a beef bouillon per cup of water . add the beans -ABOUT 2 CUPS - and cook from 2 -3 hours . and yes keep a eye out . you will need to keep adding water . i have been cooking for years . THIS IS FAT FREE . AND JUST AS GOOD . BY THE TIME THE BEANS ARE DONE .THE ONIONS WILL HAVE COOKED UP . YOUR FAMILY WILL NOT KNOW YOU PUT AN ONION IT IT . BUT ITS SO GOOD .
