I soak mine overnight then in the morning I will drain off any water that is left and put beans in a crock pot, put water about 1 inch above beans, I add a half of jar of the Hot Picante sauce, I small onion peeled and chopped. Then some times I will add some chili powder to taste...Then I will set the crock pot on medium and cook till supper time....Oh and don't forget the cornbread....

Similar, except I rarely soak the beans ahead of time. The only thing the soaking process does is make the beans swell which help reduce the cooking time. However, I prefer my beans to "soak up" the flavorings within the crock pot with the other seasonings rather than just water. I just sort the beans out of the bag to make sure there are no "rocks" in them. Throw them into a big strainer and wash them real good, then into the crock pot. Cover with water till about 1-2 inches above the beans.

From here, I make it one of 2 ways.

1) I take some bacon and render it down in a skillet, then remove. Cut up some tomatoes, onions and jalapenos and add them into the bacon drippings and cook it down. Add that to the pot of beans. Now just turn on the crock pot and let her go. Add a little salt, pepper and garlic powder, stir. After a couple of hours, I like to "test" the flavoring in the juice to see if any additional salt and pepper need to be added.

2) If I don't have bacon on hand or want a slightly different taste, I just a smoked ham hock in place of the bacon. I add it to the pot of beans then use the same blend of onions, jalapenos and tomatoes, salt and pepper. After the hock has cooked for for hours, I remove it, let it cool and pick the meat off of it and add the meat back into the pot of beans.

I will sometimes just use add some picante sauce to the beans rather than going through the trouble of cooking up the tomatoes and onions but ALWAYS add either bacon or ham hock.

On some occasions I will add some fresh cilantro at the end of the cooking but it sort of depends on who is over eating with us as I know some folks really don't like the flavor of cilantro.

Will try this again. Use two lbs. of pinto beans, at least 1/2 chopped onion, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 poblano pepper, 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1 tbs. chili powder, 1 can of Rotel, 2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. black pepper. Combine all the above and add water to more than cover in a large pot. Very important! Add a ham bone, ham, or a piece of smoked pork. Cook slowly for at least two hours adding water as necessary to keep a soup like consistency. When the beans seem to be close to getting tender, add some chopped cilantro. You'll like them! WH

Soak a pound of beans overnight.

There is no recipe, sorry... I just toss it in as I go. Beef broth, a ham bone with some meat left on it and some of the drippings from when I made the ham. Onion, jalapeno, cumin, chile powder (ancho if you can find it), a bay leaf or two, garlic, cayenne, red and black pepper.

I really don't care for cilantro in my beans.... I just like a good bean flavor with a really excellent rich broth.

Use ingredients that you use to make pico de gallo and a bottle beer. Sweat some bacon in the pan prior to adding onions, jalapenos and garlic. Stir in the other when almost done and garnish with more pico.

Soak beans overnight, wash again. Slice onion, jalepenos, tomatoes, half pound bacon and can and a half favorite beer. Add chili powder, sea salt, cumin, garlic, and black pepper. Cook on low for about 5-6 hours. Eat for 30 minutes, enjoy for about 18 hours!

For those of you that soak the beans, why do you soak them?

I never have time to plan and soak them...somebody is always asking for a pot of beans with supper. So I use a pressure cooker, takes 45 mins in pressure cooker, then about 30 mins more on the stove top. I season with this: salt, pepper, chili powder, fresh minced garlic, few slices of salt pork. Only buy Casserole brand pinto beans.

I also cook small white beans this way, done in about an hour.
