Boring beans? Not these Bacon Borracho Beans! Dry beans are transformed into something magical when infused with bacon and garlic!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound dried pinto beans, sorted and picked over, soaked overnight
  • 3 slices center-cut bacon, diced
  • 1/2 small white onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • limes, cut into wedges for serving
  • cilantro, for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Drain the pinto beans, discarding the liquid.
  2. Set a large pot over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook, stirring frequently until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook 5 minutes, until softened. Stir in garlic, salt, and beans.
