This one. Go with Benny's recipe. Soak or don't soak. Great beans either way.

I like to use a basic recipe without adding any salt to the pinto beans during the cook. I use smoked hocks and I add a couple cups of Chico’s that have been soaked for about five hours prior to the cook. Quality NM horno smoked Chico’s are the best to use.

I've always been told to never add salt until the end of the cook. Salt will make the skin tough. Also, I always throw in couple pats of butter at the end as well. I like to make mine Charo style. Bacon, onion, tomato, garlic, small slices hot dog, chicharrones, jalapeno or serrano. Its a meal in itself. mmmmm

Always enjoyed my moms pinto beans. Some meat (ham hock, venison, beef, whatever), a big onion and lots of fajita seasoning. Always came out AWESOME.

Cooking beans in salted water will not make their skin tougher, this is an old wives' tale that has been disproven.

Anyone let their beans soak over night?

I always try to soak them overnight. Then cook in chicken stock with a pound of bacon and seasoning of your choice. Fiesta makes a pinto bean seasoning that is good. Add rotel if you like.

could be. just the way most of the old generation Mexican ladies do it and told me. I've just always kept with that tradition because of that. Doesn't hurt to wait.

I have tried all different things but the best version is in an electric pressure cooker. It cooks them super fast and they come out really soft. To hell with burning up a ton of propane on the stove and never getting them soft enough!

Look up five heart home pinto bean recipe. That's the one I use. Wife loves it. I usually don't eat them, but I do this recipe. I just put them on in the morning before work in a crockpot and let it go all day. I usually use lean spiral cut ham instead of bacon. I also use rotel with habanero. I never have to soak them if in a crockpot. But I have tried it that way. Just makes them cook faster.
