This is one of my favorite recipes for the beginning of a busy week. I make a large pot of it and the flavor just seems to get even better each day it sits.🀀
The quick cooking procedure is such a lifesaver since it reduces the pre-soaking to only an hour! Β I rarely ever remember to pre-soak my pinto beans overnight… but doing it this way still produces such delicious results.🧑

The amounts of each ingredient can just be adjusted to suit your specific taste - I am one of those people who prefer extra spicy and extra garlicky πŸ˜πŸ§„πŸŒΆ. This version is also meatless, but feel free to add that as well in yours!
(This pairs sooooo good with my Perfect Spanish Rice recipe, which you’ll find soon up on my blog as well!)

🌢2lbs dry Pinto Beans
🌢1TBS Chicken Bouillon (I use β€˜Better than Bouillon’)
🌢1 White Onion
🌢2 Jalapeños
🌢2 Bulbs of Garlic (I have been known to use 3πŸ˜‚)
🌢Bunch of fresh Oregano
🌢Heaping TBS of Cumin
🌢Salt & Pepper

Quick Soaking Method:

🧑In a large saucepan or dutch oven add your 2lbs of pinto beans, a couple TBS Salt, and approx 16 cups of water (you can always add more if you see it being soaked up), stir to dissolve.

🧑Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
Turn off heat and cover the beans for 1 hour of soaking.

🧑Drain and rinse the beans before cooking.

Cooking Beans:

🌢In a large saucepan or dutch oven, add your pre-soaked beans, and enough water to cover close to about an inch higher than beans (I start with that and add more water if needed)

🌢While water is heating I chop up and add everything else…

🌢Add in TBS of chicken Bouillon, quartered white onion, 2 whole JalapeΓ±os (I slice the tops off), whole cloves from 2 bulbs of garlic (adjust amount of garlic to suit you, I love it garlickyπŸ§„β™₯️), nice big bunch of chopped fresh Oregano and heaping TBS of Cumin. Β 

🌢Bring water to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover and reduce heat to low. Stir your beans occasionally to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot, about every 30 minutes.

🌢When Jalapeños have softened, I pull them out, chop up and throw them back in along with seeds!

🌢Gently cook beans over low heat until tender and creamy, about 60 to 90 minutes.   Taste it and adjust your seasoning if needed.  I always wait till this point to add my salt & pepper.

Yummy!!! Β Store them in the fridge and enjoy the flavors getting even better as they get to know each other in the pot over the next several daysπŸ˜‰πŸ§„πŸŒΆ Β Β
