Leftover pinto beans suggestions?

When I cook beans, I make several pounds so I can have leftovers. Then I forget what I had in mind & freeze them as is. What do you guys do with pinto or any leftover beans?

Beans and rice, with smoked meat and/or sausage of some sort. Bean soup. Bean dip is good too!

Chili, Quesadillas, Tacos, Burritos...

Bean salad with corn, chopped sweet onion, black olives, tomatoes, cilantro (optional), etc. with a lime vinaigrette.

one of the most simple things that i make: escarole and bean soup. it's traditionally made with canellini or other white beans such as great northern, but i've used other coloured beans with good results. and if you use veggie stock, it's suitable for vegetarians.

just 7 simple ingredients, and it's ready in 20 minutes so long as the beans are already cooked/soft. i usually use canned beans that are pretty much ready to eat.
quite simply, beans, escarole, garlic, onions, chicken stock (or vegetable), evoo, and parmesan cheese.

in a stock pot, sweat the diced onions and gently brown the garlic in evoo, toss with a load of chopped escarole and saute until it wilts, add beans and enough stock to cover, bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 or 15 minutes.
ladle into a bowl, sprinkle with grated parm , drizzle with a little evoo, and garnish with a few large shavings of the parmesan cheese.

hth.

Well, Hold it right there, Pardner. I didn't know you could freeze beans!!

This opens up a whole realm of possibilities. I like making pintos and then using in burritos, tostadas, refried beans, etc and keep turning one dish into another until the beans are all gone. But really, after while, the dishes all do seem kind of similar. Since you say they are freezable, I can save for later use. Swell.

Re-heat a few ladles in a saucepan. Mash or use stick blender until smooth. Add a tablespoon of ground cumin, 2 teaspoons of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper. Then stir in 3 - 4 ounces of shredded cheese and heat until bubbly.

Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
