6 strips bacon , chopped

2 cloves garlic , chopped

1 lb dried pinto bean

2 medium onions , chopped

4 medium fresh plum tomatoes , chopped

1/2 bunch fresh cilantro , chopped

2 jalapeno peppers , seeded and chopped

salt and pepper

1 medium green pepper , chopped

1 (12 ounce) can beer (chef’s choice)


Rinse and pick over beans. Bring the beans to a boil in a large pot of water and cook over medium heat for 1½ to 2 hours until they tender but still firm. Before the beans are done, fry the bacon in a large skillet until halfway cooked. Add garlic, tomatoes, onions, and green pepper; continue cooking with bacon until the bacon crisp. Add a can of beer to bacon mixture and simmer a few additional minutes, or longer if you like your beans softer. Add chopped cilantro and jalapenos; combine everything in one large pot. Add salt and pepper to taste.
