    1 large onion chopped
    1 large bell pepper chopped
    3 cloves garlic chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    salt to taste
    red pepper to taste
    1 tsp chili powder


Rinse and sort pinto beans, soak overnight or if you forget, you can always do a quick soak, bring to a boil for about 5 mins, remove from heat, soak for about an hour, drain water, add fresh water to cover about an inch above level of beans, you can add water throughout cooking depending upon how soupy you like your beans. In a seperate pot brown sausage in olive oil, add onion and green pepper, saute until onion is translusent, then add your garlic. When the beans start getting tender you can add your sausage and vegetables. Then add the chili powder, season with salt and red pepper to taste. Continue to simmer until beans are tender and juice thickens to desired consistancy. Serve with hot corn bread or if you prefer cooked white rice. Enjoy!
