Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Pinto beans; soaked overnight
1½ teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Lard

1. Drain off the water in which the beans were soaked. Place the beans in a 3-qt. dutch oven with the salt and 2 qts. water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 3 hours or until the beans are tender, adding more water as necessary. Allow to cool 30 min.
