    cup dried pinto beans

  • 3

    cups reserved chicken broth

  • 3

    bacon slices, diced

  • 1

  • 2

    teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2

    teaspoons chili powder

  • ¾

    teaspoon salt

  • ½

Directions

Instead of soaking pinto beans overnight, use the quick soak method to make this Mexican side dish. Use a smokey thick-cut bacon for additional flavor. For more heat, add minced jalapeno. Sort and wash pinto beans; place in a large saucepan. Cover with water 2 inches above beans, and bring to a boil. Boil beans 1 minute. Cover, remove from heat, and let soak 1 hour. Drain. Bring beans, broth, and remaining ingredients to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours. Chill, if desired; reheat over medium heat.
