Bacon Pinto Beans
If you love Chipotle’s pinto beans, look no further because now you can make them at home. Dried pinto beans cook all day in the slow cooker with bacon, onion and garlic to make these flavorful Bacon Pinto Beans. Perfect for rice bowls, nacho night or even on their own.
Servings 12 servings
- 16 oz. dried pinto beans, soaked overnight
- 4 slices thick-cut bacon
- 1 large sweet onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, grated
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
Soak beans overnight. In the morning, rinse beans and drain beans. Add to slow cooker. Add enough water to cover beans (about 6 cups for my slow cooker).
Dice bacon into small pieces and cook over medium heat until crisp. Add bacon to slow cooker. Add onions to pan with bacon grease and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook another minute. Add everything to the slow cooker and stir.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
