To prepare dried pinto beans either soak them overnight in plenty of water; or rinse beans and bring to the boil in fresh water Ð then let stand covered for 1-2 hours. Do not add salt to the cooking water at this stage, as this can make the ÔskinsÕ tough. Drain & use, or refrigerate for up to 2 days. Alternatively, dried pintos can be added directly to slow-cook recipes and cooked for about 4 hours. Pinto Beans will almost double in weight when cooked. Pinto beans are delicious in a mixed bean salad with olive oil, garlic & fresh herbs; lunchbox wraps; dips or salsa; traditional Mexican refried beans, soups & broths or in a chilli hot-pot. Wonderful with fish, chicken, bacon or spicy sausage.
