Pick over pinto's and wash.
Soak in water over night, then rinse
Render the bacon until soft
Add onion and peppers stir until onion is soft.
Add garlic stir for just a few minutes
Add beans, seasonings and tomatoes.
Cover all with water, bring to a boil, turn down to a slow simmer until beans are done.
Add Clintro towards the very end so it stays bright green.
If tomatoes are not red and ripe use canned or tomato juice.
That is a lot of bacon, but .... it's what makes the dish. The person who showed me how to make these used 1 full pound!
