    Tamaretta's Note:

    I found this is a stack of old handwritten recipes. I probably copied it from the Houston Chronicle?? I have not made this at home yet, so serving size and prep time are a guess. Also, I personally would drain some of the bacon fat and add the salt to taste, but I am listing it how it was originally written. Please note these beans should soak for 8 hours, so plan ahead.

      This was a delicious recipe!! I used 2 extra large cans of black beans with the juices in place of the pinto beans and it still was amazing!! I will definitely be making this one again and again!!

      This was a nice, easy to prepare soup, which smelled quite good as it cooked. Adding the fresh tomatoes and cilantro right before serving was a nice touch, adding a bright color and flavor. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '12
