Can you imagine! Pinto beans with no bacon fat or ham bone. Amazing! This is a great substitute for baked beans at your next cookout. These are even better reheated the following day.
Chipotle Pinto Beans
1 pound dried pinto beans, soaked overnight
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 whole chipotle chili in adobo
Drain beans. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, cover and bring to a boil. Remove and set aside the chipotle pepper. Lower heat and simmer until beans are tender, stirring frequently and assign more water when needed. Salt to taste and return the chipotle pepper to pot.
