About 6 years later, I've finally got a pot simmering on the stove. Looks good!

Made some for dinner this evening, and it was a hit. Unfortunately there were no leftovers :-(

Made a pot last week. Really good. I would prefer to make the beans from dry ones instead of canned, but in a pinch these are really good. Great for parties and catering.

If you are really in a pinch, you can use 2 cans of rotel instead of a chopped tomato, and a small can of chopped jalopenos. Then cut up the bacon and onion and cilantro. Use the canned beans and it still comes out great.

I love dumping a ton of pico into my pinto beans so I give you the following;

~easy pico recipe~

You will need
1. A car
2. A nearby Taco Cabana
3. Lack of shame

Step one: go to taco cabana and order a water and fill the cup with their pico it's delicious

This was a really good recipe. I had it on my phone for years and made it this last weekend. Made a few exceptions: 1 dry beans, 2 crock pot all day until beans were soft.

I've made these a handful of times. Always good.

What makes me laugh though is that there are always a couple people that post and say they used dry beans instead of canned beans. Maybe its a pride thing.

May I ask what your objection to dried beans is?

As the "guru" of this recipe, I will tell you that dry beans made right and used in this recipe is outstanding, but it defeats 3/4 of the point.

Yes, the point of this recipe is to be quick, easy, and good.

Dry beans are how pintos should be done, but don't belong on this thread.

I have done this recipe with soaked dry beans but actually prefer it with canned. I do thoroughly rinse the canned beans in a strainer first though and that makes a big difference.

I made a batch of these beans on Saturday to take to a Memorial Weekend party.

One guy there from Monterey, Mexico who really liked them told me what beans in that style are called down there, but I didn't recognize the word he used.

I"m going to cook these for a large family reunion this weekend. Looking at 50 people so I need a little help with scaling the recipe up. How many servings do you normally get out of the original recipe?

The beans will go along with standard BBQ and fixin's.

I double the recipe for 25 grown men as a side to fajitas. Perfect amount. If you are serving women and children I'd say make 3 batches.

Or you can always make 4 batches and turn whatever is left over into refried bean dip the next day. I melt some butter in a skillet, add the beans and a can of rotel, mash/fry. As you mash them the starch from the beans will start to thicken it. Put some cheese on top, lid on to melt. Voila.

I'm working on making this in the office microwave. Getting close.

My officemate is occasionally not amused with my cooking experimentation at the office.

I have nothing against dried beans, but the recipe calls for canned beans. There are no less than 100 people saying they taste great with the canned beans the recipe calls for. What I think is funny is that people insist on saying I made this recipe, but used dried beans.

Yeah, I do find it funny when people on sites such as allrecipes.com write reviews stating that they made the recipe (and gave it a rating!), but changed everything about it.

So I've received such rave feedback on these beans, I decided to enter them into a contest last weekend at a BBQ contest I was competing in. I forgot the fresh tomato and cilantro and still took 2nd place, losing to 1st by .004.

You can now officially refer to these as B-1 83's Award Winning Beans.

One woman at the office tried some that I had left over from the Memorial Weekend party. She liked them so much that she went home that night and made them herself. And she's made them at least once since then, too.

After watching this thread for (what feels like) years, finally tried the recipe.

Absolutely delicious.

God Bless you, B-1

When you say large cans how many oz. are we talking per can? They come on three sizes.

I gave the recipe to my mom for a family gathering, she used dry beans because that's what she had on hand already. Literally no difference whatsoever between canned and dry, IMO.

My wife requests these weekly. We use Chapel Hill green chili sausage instead of bacon and we add diced potatoes about halfway through cooking.
