Pinto Beans

Submitted by: BLUEKITTEN


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 pound dry pinto beans, about 2-1/3 cups
    2 quarts of tap water
    1/4 cup margarine
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper

Tips

Great with corn bread and mixed greens.

Use leftovers for easy, healthful refried beans!


Directions

Soak the beans in 2 quarts of cold water overnight, or in 2 quarts of boiling water for an hour or two. After soaking, or the next day, bring the beans to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat, so the beans merely simmer. Cover and simmer for half an hour. Then add the margarine, salt and pepper. Cover again and simmer for another 45 minutes to an hour. The beans should be tender and fragrant. Bite into one to see if it is cooked though. When they are tender, they are ready to serve.

Serving Size: approximately 8 servings
