Pappasito's Frijoles A La Charra (Pinto Bean Soup)

Submitted by: TRINABENIS

Introduction

This could totally be done with turkey bacon to lower the fat but my husband cooked it (his FAVORITE beans ever and was trying to recreate) so I was trying to get close to accurate read for what I was about to eat. And yes, I know the sodium is high again, the husband was cooking. He claims to have actually used closer to .5 lb bacon so the nutrition info uses that.
