Seasoned Pinto Beans

Yield 8 to 10 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups dried pinto beans
  • 3/4 pound hog jowl, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup regular rice, uncooked
  • Hot sauce (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Sort and wash beans; place in a large Dutch oven. Cover with water 2 inches above beans; let soak overnight. Drain well.

  2. Combine beans, hog jowl, onion, celery, green pepper, salt, and water to cover in Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook 2 1/2 hours.

  3. Drain cooking liquid from beans. Measure 2 cups cooking liquid; add back to beans. Discard remaining cooking liquid. (Water may be added to cooking liquid to equal 2 cups liquid, if needed.) Add rice, and stir well. Cover and cook over low heat 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Serve with hot sauce, if desired.
