How to make it
- Pick over pinto's and wash.
- Soak in water over night, then rinse
- Render the bacon until soft
- Add onion and peppers stir until onion is soft.
- Add garlic stir for just a few minutes
- Add beans, seasonings and tomatoes.
- Cover all with water, bring to a boil, turn down to a slow simmer until beans are done.
- Add Clintro towards the very end so it stays bright green.
- If tomatoes are not red and ripe use canned or tomato juice.
- That is a lot of bacon, but .... it's what makes the dish. The person who showed me how to make these used 1 full pound!
- I hope you can understand how to do these... they are a classic here in the Rio Grande Valley and just over the bridge in Mexico.
