I set aside maybe 2 Cups of Pinto Beans (soak overnight and rinse, add new water)
This is made in a med size crockpot and cooked on low all day.
Add Ham at beginning if you want. We had some left from Thanksgiving. This would be perfect for a small ham bone, otherwise add some cooked bacon and drippings when you add the salsa during the last 30 min of cooking.
Add 1 cups of Paul’s Red Salsa 2 tbsp of cumin, and 1 tbsp salt
Stir cook an additional 30 min
If you don’t have salsa on hand- use the following
1 can of diced tomatoes or 1 cup of diced- fresh
1 small onion diced
¼ c of cilantro
2 jalapenos or one small can
1 tbsp garlic
2 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp salt
