Ingredients

    3 cups dry pinto beans, rinsed
    1 medium onion, quartered
    1 Serrano Chili pepper, chopped
    2 Tbsp minced garlic (about 4 cloves)
    3 tsp salt
    1 3/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp cumin powder
    1/8 tsp chili powder
    9 cups water

Tips

Before you mash up the cooked pinto beans, have a bowl of bean soup ladled over rice (not included in nutritional calculations).
For a less spice, remove the seeds & membrane from the Serrano Chili.
I use a 2 quart crockpot and cook on low for 16 - 18 hours. The beans become more flavorful with the longer cook time.

Directions

Place rinsed pinto beans, quartered onion, chopped Serrano Chili pepper, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, cumin and chili powder in crock pot. Pour water over beans and stir.
Cook on high for 8 - 10 hours.
After the beans have cooked and become soft, drain the beans in a colander with a bowl underneath saving the juice. Place the beans in a food processor with some of the juice. Blend to desired consistency adding more juice, if needed. You might need to repeat this process depending on the capacity of your food processor.
