Ingredients

  • 3 pounds dry pinto beans
  • 2 pounds thick-sliced bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 large onions, diced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • Two 28-ounce cans diced tomatoes with peppers, such as Rotel
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Sort through the dry beans to ensure there are no rocks, and rinse the beans thoroughly. Pour into a pot, along with the bacon, onions, tomatoes and peppers, and some salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil, and then cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook until soft but not mushy, about 5 hours. 

Cook's Note

For a fun Pizzitola's-style twist, add pico de gallo and Cheddar cheese when serving.
