  • Summary

    Took 15 minutes to throw it together and THEY WERE AMAZING! My husband said that they were as good as the beans you get at a restaurant . . . and the recipe is so easy that you can’t go wrong!

    Ingredients

    • 1 onion, peeled and halved
    • 3 cups dry pinto beans, rinsed
    • 1/4-1/2 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (I used about 1/4 because I wanted my kids to eat it and not think it was too hot)
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
    • 3 teaspoons salt
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
    • 5 cups water
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • -If you want to turn this into a big batch of bean dip, add the following:
    • 2 cups salsa
    • 2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese
    • 2 cups shredded pepperjack cheese
    • 8 oz. cream cheese
    • 16 oz. sour cream
    • 2 Tbls chili powder
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
    • Mix in with the beans and let cook a couple hours longer so flavors can blend. Makes a huge batch so just freeze leftovers!
