DIRECTIONS

  • Soak pinto beans in bowl of hot water overnight.
  • After your beans have soaked overnight, proceed to take out your Crock Pot.
  • If you are using the Slow Cooker Liners then line your Crock Pot.
  • Place all ingredients into the Crock Pot except the tomatoes, onion, bacon, and cilantro.
  • Turn Crock Pot on highest setting until beans turn light brown. This generally takes about 4 to 5 hours depending on the Crock Pot.
  • Prior to the beans turning light brown cut the uncooked thick sliced bacon into one inch pieces.
  • Place the one inch pieces of bacon in a skillet and cook with the ¼ of the finely chopped onion.
  • Once bacon and onion are fully cooked and beans are light brown place bacon, onions and any drippings into the Crock Pot.
  • Add ½ of the tomatoes and cilantro and switch to Crock Pot cooking to low for about an hour.
  • Once you are ready to serve, add the remainder of the tomatoes and cilantro.
