Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry pinto beans
  • 1 garlic clove, slightly crushed
  • 1 small chunk white onion
  • 6 to 8 cups hot water
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Clean beans and rinse in cold water once or twice until water runs clear. Cover beans with hot water and soak overnight.
  2. Place hot water in a large pot that has a tight-fitting lid. Add pinto beans, garlic clove, onion and water. Bring to a boil and lower heat to medium, keeping it at a simmer. Cook, covered, for 2 or 3 hours or until tender. If more water is needed always add boiling water, a cup or so at a time.
  3. Add salt after beans are soft.

Yield: about 4 cups cooked beans and 2 cups broth
