Ingredients

  • 2

    c pinto beans(wash and sort; place beans in a crock pot and cover the beans with about 6 c water and soak overnight with 1/2 t salt and 1 clove of garlic)

  • 1/4

    chopped onion (optional)

  • 2-3

    T bacon grease

  • salt to taste

  • monterey jack cheese grated, or your favorite cheese

Directions

After the beans have soaked overnight, turn the crock pot on high until the water starts to boil. Then reduce the temperture and maintain a medium boil. I boil these all day long(8-10 hrs) until they start to fall apart. When this starts to happen, remove most of the excess water and reserve in a bowl. At this point, the beans should mash pretty easy with a potato masher. After they are mashed, heat bacon grease and saute chopped onion until tender. Add mashed beans, and fry. If they dry out to fast, you can add some of the leftover juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
