Great Beans! I do add a bay leaf during cooking but otherwise follow the directions and ingredients exactly.
It's unanimous, 5 stars again. Loved this with cornbread and salad. I didn't change the seasonings at all and thought they were perfect. Made this with turkey ham and pureed 1 cup of the finished beans, adding them back to the pot for creaminess.
This is a very good recipe. They are very flavorful. Thanks for posting.
These are excellent! The only thing I change is sometimes I will pour a little hot sauce in with the bacon to give it an extra little kick. These are awesome with any dish, but we like them best with brisket or fried catfish!
Thought I would prepare my pinto beans a different way and choose your recipe. The beans tasted pretty good. Thanks momstar. Bullwinkle.
This is the way my mom always made these when I was growing up, and the way I have been making them for years (except for the cayenne). We call these brown beans. These were great. I only gave them 4 stars because I followed the directions exactly, and after the cooking time specified, the beans were done, but not as tender as I would have liked them. DH and I really wanted these for dinner but my recipe always takes longer so I was looking for one with a shorter cooking time. Next time I'll allow more time and let them cook a little longer so they will be more tender. Great taste, though. Thanks!
These are absolutely fantastic! DH and I made the beans exactly as written...and it will be a repeat here, quiet often! Thank you for this wonderful, flavorful and also aromatic recipe, momstar!
This is the absolute best recipe for pintos I have ever had!! My DH loved them. I used smoked pork jowl for seasoning. I also used salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Tony Chacheres cajun seasoning. They were great. If you let them cook longer than listed, they are creamy. Thanks for submitting this recipe.
I have been making pinto beans this way for years. It is the only way I know how. Great comfort food, especially with warm cornbread. YUMMMMMMM
My DH requested pinto beans for his birthday and when I saw this recipe I decided to try it. It was great. The only thing different I did was to use fresh garlic and onion. I also made Garlic-Onion Dinner Muffins #50973 and the combination was heavenly...just good ole comfort food! Thanks. You posted this one just in time!
