1 1/2 cups dried pinto beans -- soak overnite
3 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3 strips raw smoked bacon
1 teaspoon salt pork or smoked hog jowl
1/2 medium onion -- sliced

Preparation / Directions:

If there's one thing I cook a lot of at the store, it's pinto beans. We serve them with our BBQ dinners. I've tried to break the recipe down into a "home" portion for you. Tips: When ready to cook, don't add too much water to the beans...this will dilute the wonderful flavor you are creating. Cover beans with about 11/2 inches of water, and add to it as they cook, if necessary. For a little zesty flavor, (I do this at home, but not at the store), add a little chopped green chili to beans. A pinto bean will sightly more than double in size when soaked....one cup of dried beans will make 2 cups (one pint). Don't cook beans at too high a fire. This will cause a hard rolling boil, and break up beans as they begin to become tender. Do a nice easy boil. It takes about 3 to 4 hours to cook till fork tender at 3100 ft. eleva
