Pinto Beans
What You Need:
  • 2 cups (1 pound) dried pinto beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 medium-sized onion, peeled
  • 1 medium-sized bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a large sieve or colander, wash the pinto beans under running water until the draining water runs clear. Pick out and discard any beans that are broken or blemished.

    2. Drop the beans into a heavy 3- to 4-quart saucepan, add the water, onion and bay leaf, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover partially and simmer for 4 hours.

    3. Add the salt and continue to simmer for 30 minutes longer, or until the beans are tender but still intact.

    4. Drain the beans in the sieve or colander, transfer them to a heated bowl and serve at once.
    Serving Size: 6 to 8
