Crock Pot Southern Pinto Beans

Crock Pot Southern Pinto Beans

Southern Pinto Beans... simple and delicious.... a favorite

on the menu at Cracker Barrel... it's a staple in many Southern kitchens ...

and so easy to make.

Honestly.. this is Warren's favorite... not mine..  oh I'm a bean fan.. but I prefer mine with

spice... but this is a great tried and true recipe... if you like Cracker

Barrel's Pinto Beans.. then this recipe is for you.


Not many tips here... keep it simple.. don't complicate it..

and you'll be just fine.

Use dried beans not canned.... healthier, no

preservatives... and cheaper.. you can't beat that.

When you soak the beans overnight... most if not almost all

the water will be absorbed into the beans... it's supposed to be like that.

Serve these with chopped raw onion and/or pickle relish and

homemade cornbread on the side.
