Texas Pinto Beans

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Top Review by John Sauerbeck

Great recipe. I added 4 slices of bacon, since it was the main course, and served it more in a bowl than a side dish. With corn bread it was a great supper. The cooking times were perfect, especially when your trying to serve fresh baked bread with it.
