Ingredients

    · 2 cups dried pinto beans, sorted and washed, soaked overnight and drained

    · 1 medium white onion, peeled and chopped

    · 2 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

    · 2 tablespoons Enova oil

    · 4 quarts water

    · salt to taste

Directions

Place the beans in a large cazuela - clay pot - or stockpot with the onion, garlic, oil, and water. Do not add salt until the beans have finished cooking. Cover and cook for 4 hours or until tender. Alternatively, beans may be cooked in a pressure cooker - olla express - as is frequently done nowadays in Mexico, following manufacturer's instructions.

When the beans are done, remove about 1 cup of them and mash or puree them with some of their liquid. Add the mashed beans back to the pot, and continue cooking a few more minutes, until the mashed beans have thickened the bean broth a bit. Add salt to taste.

Serve the beans in the clay pot or an attractive, heat-proof bowl. Pass a platter of garnishes - chopped onions, crumbled cheese, chopped cilantro - so that each diner can add them to taste.
be sure to count the calories for the toppings.
Serves 6.
