Marie's Mexican Pinto Beans

User Rating 3 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Pinto beans recipe, Mexican-style, for the slow cooker or crockpot.


  • 1 small bag of dry pinto beans (1 pound)
  • bacon
  • onion
  • cilantro
  • small jar of salsa, or to taste


Rinse bag of beans and soak overnight. Next day put in crockpot or slow cooker covered with water, almost to the top; cover and cook on LOW heat 5 to 7 hours, until beans are tender. After about 5 hours, when beans are tender, fry up desired amount of bacon, onion and cilantro until bacon is cooked through and onion is clear; drain well. Add to beans, along with some of the drippings from bacon. Add salsa to taste. Cover and cook about 1 to 2 more hours. So yummy, I always make 2 slow cookers to share with my brother. This could be a main meal with Spanish rice.

Other Reviewer Had to have old beans., Member R_E_B_A

The previous reviewer probably had old beans or they added salt to the beans before they were tender. This is a good recipe. Very tasty.
