Number of Servings: 6


    1-1/2 c dried pinto beans
    2 tsp baking soda
    6 slices John Morrell Maple Thick Bacon
    1-1/2 c onion, chopped
    2 Tbsp garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp thyme
    1-1/2 tsp cracked pepper
    1-1/2 tsp marjoram
    2 Tbsp Gourmet Garden Cilantro Herb Blend
    3 c water


Soak beans in water with baking soda (to remove the 'umph'!) overnight. Drain and rinse well. Spray crock pot with non-stick, add drained beans.
Cook bacon, onion and garlic until bacon just looses flexibility. Add to crock pot. Add 3 cups water, cumin, thyme, pepper marjoram and cilantro. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.

    I have always made a recipe with just plain bacon but this one really hit the spot. I use the crock pot liners to save on clean up. - 9/15/13
