Recipe by OneEyeJack
READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Use a 5 quart pot. Clean the pinto beans, add to pot and cover with water (2 inches).
  • Add onions, garlic, bacon (whole), ham (quartered or chunks) and Williams spice. Bring to rolling boil, cover and simmer for one hour.
  • Remove ham, bacon, and garlic, Skim off the fat, I use a square ladle, excellent for this (google square ladle).
  • In a food processor chop the ham, bacon and garlic fine returning it to the bean pot after it's chopped. Cook uncovered until you get the bean texture you like, stirring from time to time.
  • You can serve the beans by itself, or put a little rice in the bottom of the bowl. ( I don't go for the rice, but my wife does). Serve with warm buttered corn tortillas.
