REC - Pinto Beans Rapido (TNT)

This recipe is great for those times when you don't want to or don't have the time to soak the beans, etc.


Pinto Beans Rapido

2 cans (16 oz. each) pinto beans
2 bacon slices, cut in inch squares
cup water
teaspoon ground cumin
Pepper, to taste
cup shredded cheddar cheese

Drain and rinse beans in strainer. Cook bacon in heavy skillet over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add half of the beans to skillet, mashing them with a potato masher. Stir in remaining beans, water, cumin, and pepper. Simmer 3 minutes or until beans are heated through. Bean mixture should be a sauce like consistency, add more water if needed. Remove from heat and stir in all but 2 tablespoons cheese. Place beans in serving dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Sounds good... is it more of a soup or a dip?

It is more like refried beans. You can adjust the thickness by reducing or increasing the amount of water. Sometimes I add diced green chilies or jalapenos for some zip.
