Pinto Beans

Sometimes you score---

These were WAY WAY good and SO good for ya.
Yesterday I cooked a ham, so it will be ham ALL week with various sides.

Lets cook beans!

Start with 1 lb. pinto beans. Soak overnight in water. Drain and rinse. Pick out nasty ones. Enter crock pot. Grease crock pot with canola oil. Add beans. Cover with water about 2-3 inches above bean line. Add 5 beef bouillon cubes. Add 2 heaping capfuls of canola oil. Stir all. Cook away for 10 hours on low. After cooking add Lawry's Seasoned Salt to taste and fresh black pepper. (I usually season each bowl of beans individually not the big pot. The kids like to season their own). 1 word here---YUMO! I hope you do not plan on eating beans all week b/c chances are they will be gone or close to gone that night!

We ate these beans with ham, Mexican cornbread, greens and sour cream. Sour cream you ask? Remember what the "old timers" drank with this meal----hmmm-----buttermilk? Same idea. Fresh cilantro is good here too. ec
