Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings
1 pound dried pinto beans, rinsed
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as ROTEL)
½ pound bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder, or to taste
1 tablespoon ground cumin, or to taste
1½ teaspoons garlic powder, or to taste
½ bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
salt to taste
Place pinto beans into a large pot and pour in enough water to cover by 2 to 3 inches.
Let beans soak overnight.
Drain beans, return to pot, and pour in fresh water to cover; add diced tomatoes, bacon, onion, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 3 hours.
Stir cilantro and salt into bean mixture; simmer until beans are soft, about 1 more hour.
