Beans a la Charra



BEANS a la CHARRA
Chevy's Fresh Mex Recipe

Makes 8 Cups

3 cups dried pinto beans
3 quarts water
6 slices (about 8 ounces) uncooked bacon, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon salt

In a stock pot, soak the beans overnight in the water (to cover). The next day, cook the bacon in a skillet over a medium-high heat until crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeno and cook for 5 minutes. Stir the chili powder and cumin and cook for 1 minute more. Add 1 cup of the soaking water from the beans while stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet to loosen all the brown bits adhered to the pan.

 Add the beans and remaining water, and bring to a rapid boil. Decrease the heat to medium low, and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the beans are soft. When the beans are cooked through, add the salt, and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Keep warm until ready to serve, or cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
