Kountry Life Recipes

Pinto beans in a crockpot
amount of pintos that you want
chunk of ham or about 3 strips of bacon
salt, pepper and garlic powder
1 large pot with lid(for soaking)
1 crockpot with lid

First figure out how many beans you want to cook, then wash them several times until the water runs clear. Put beans in a pot with water to cover and bring to a boil. Turn heat off and let sit for 1 hour. Pour beans and water into your crockpot add water just to cover(water doesn't evaporate in a crockpot) Add your ham or bacon and turn on high. In my crockpot it takes 4 to 5 hours to cook. After about 3 hours season the beans. They will be done when the juice is a dark rich brown. The secret to good beans in a crockpot is to take out a cup or so and mash them and then return them to the bean pot. This makes them thick and good. check the seasonings before serving . I use salt pepper and a little garlic powder. Serve pinto beans with taters,greens or cabbage, mac-n-cheese,and cornbread. Offer sliced onion and tomatoes. Yummy, southern heaven!
