Why I Love This Recipe

Pinto beans can take up to 3 hours to cook depending on the age of bean, variety or size of bean.

If beans are soaked overnight, you may reduce cooking time to approximately 1 hour.

However I personally prefer the taste of cooking pinto beans and most all other beans dry.

Not surprisingly pinto bean is the most popular bean in the USA.
