      These were fantastic Nurse Di. I made these for Labor Day because I have some real heat-seekers in my family. Very spicy and full of flavor. A keeper in our book Thanks for sharing this.

      Made this last night for supper. We love pinto beans and hot/spicy food. So this was perfect for us. Just the right amount of heat. The bacon and onion are a big plus. Probably next time, I will try it in the crockpot like the other reviewer. Just to see what happens. Thanks for a terrific recipe.

      WE love pinto beans (and live in Texas!) so we actually make them ALL the time. We used a can of rotel tomatoes for this, normally when we make our own we do not use any tomatoes but this was fun. Also, we did use a crockpot on low and let it cook all day stirring when we head home for lunch.
