Pappasito's Cantina Frijoles a la Charra

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds pinto beans, uncooked
  • 1 gallon cold water
  • 3/4 pound bacon pieces, chopped into 1-inch squares
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped fine
  • 4 tablespoons plus 1/8 cup cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 cup white onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 gallon cold water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 cups Roma tomatoes, chopped

Instructions

  1. Soak beans in 1 gallon cold water for 8 hours. Drain when ready to use.
  2. In a 2-gallon heavy pot cook the bacon pieces until well done. Do not undercook the bacon. Add 1/2 cup chopped garlic, 3 tablespoons cilantro and the chopped onions to hot bacon. Cook until onions are transparent. When onions are ready, add beans, cumin and chili powder. Stir and add 1/2 gallon cold water. Turn heat to medium low. Add salt and stir. Cook beans slowly until fork tender (approximately 1 hour), stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  3. Add tomatoes, remaining garlic and cilantro.
  4. Serve.
