  • 1 can pinto beans
  • small clove of garlic
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive or canola oil


Place all in food processor and blend until smooth.

Makes a great dip, or a base layer for burritos and tostadas. I sometimes also add about 1/4 cup of picante sauce for a different flavor.

My pinto beans are the best around and the easiest to make. First I rinse the dry beans, getting rid of any dirt or rocks. Then I pop them in my crock pot and add enough water to more than cover the beans.

The beans will swell and soak up the water so keep checking to make sure you have enough water. Next, I put in a chunk of salt pork. Turn the crock pot on to either high or low, depending on how long you want to cook.


That's it! They are so good. I have gotten so many compliments on them.

After cooking them, you can take some and mash. Then reheat and use in burritos, or just put some in a bowl, add a little cheddar and eat just like that. Yum!

Once you have boiled your beans for 2 1/2 hours, use bacon grease, 1 Tbsp. for 2 cups of beans. To pour the bacon grease, let it warm up, then add your fresh boiled beans with their own juice. Simmer for 1/2 hour, making sure they don't dry up. Smash if you like. I like mine whole or partially smashed.

Good toppings include: chopped onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro. You add just before serving. Enjoy!
