You might not believe this recipe but it is real and it works. It looks and taste a lot like pecan pie.
Mash beans until they are completely mashed. Combine sugar, spices, add beans, egg, egg yolks and mix. Bake at 350 degrees F. in a pie shell for 1 hour 10 minutes.

It sounds so strange it took me a long time before I was brave enough to try it but I was pleasantly surprised. You might be too. Let me know what you think.

Mash cooked pinto beans with beaten eggs, minced onion, carrot and salt. add flour a little at a time and mix well. Make into patties which will be sticky. Fry in 1/4 inch of oil for two minutes or so on each side. If you like, top with cheese and soy sauce or ketchup.

A cool variation on chili recipes. Like the Mexican flavor.

Dry pinto beans are pressure cooked quickly and easy to use when cooked in an Instant Pot. You do not need to soak the beans, as you do when cooking on the stovetop.

I am looking for a recipe for pinto bean pie. It might be called "Soup Bean Pie". I had this pie several years ago and the person that had made it has passed away. I hope you can help me. I would like to try to make it for my family.

My mom use to make it for us. It was called Mock Pecan Pie. See if you can find the recipe under this name. (01/23/2006)
When I got this recipe a few years ago I just couldn't bring myself to try it for a long time. Pinto Bean pie sounds very strange. When I did get the nerve to try it, I was pleasantly surprised. This pie tastes a lot like pecan pie. Just be sure to mash the beans up very well.
