Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4

    cups dried pinto beans, soaked overnight in enough water to cover

  • 7 1/2

    cups water

  • 2

    onions, peeled and cut in half

  • 10

    cloves garlic, peeled

  • 2

    Tablespoons butter

  • 2

    onions, finely chopped

  • 2

    teaspoons ground cumin*

  • 1

    teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1

    teaspoon chili powder

  • small bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 3

    garlic cloves, minced

  • salt

Directions

Instructions: 1. Drain pinto beans, and rinse and drain again. Heat water in large pot until boiling. Add soaked beans, two halved onions, and ten whole garlic cloves. Return to boiling and simmer, uncovered, for about 90 minutes, or until beans are very soft and water is almost all absorbed. 2. Melt butter in large skillet or stock pot. Add the two chopped onions, the cumin, ground coriander, and chili powder. Cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 15-20 minutes, adding water if needed to prevent scorching. 3. Stir in fresh cilantro, and the three remaining garlic cloves. Start adding beans, a spoonful at a time, frying for a couple minutes and mashing with a fork or potato masher as you add them. Continue until all beans have been added. 4. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans have thickened to consistency desired, about 30-40 minutes. Season with salt and ladle into serving dishes, topping with feta cheese and fresh cilantro for garnish.
