Pinto Beans Just Add Rice

A simple framework for some pintos you can trick out into borracho beans or as is. I use this base for red and butter beans. Hell, you could use almost any bean… Over some rice makes a meal in itself. I use can and dry beans depending on the situation. The recipe is for canned beans but for dry you're looking at about 1lb of them. Anyways too easy

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
