Recipes Using Pinto Beans

July 13, 2009

Pinto Beans on White BackgroundYou 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.

If you like, you can add 1/2 cup coconut.

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.

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.
