1 1/2 teaspoon jarred garlic

2 small roma tomatoes

4 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled

1 tablespoon bacon drippings

1/2 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 tablespoon black pepper

3/4 tablespoon salt

12 ounces chicken broth


  • Empty bag of dry pinto beans into a colander, and rinse beans thoroughly.

  • Place the cooked bacon strips on a plate with a paper towel on it. Pour 1 tablespoon of drippings into a glass container and save for later. When bacon has cooled, crumble 4 slices into a small bowl and save for later.
  • Use a food processor or blender to puree the tomatoes, onion, and jalapeno together. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, crumbled bacon, bacon drippings, chili powder, and garlic to the pureed vegetables.
  • Pour cooked and rinsed pinto beans into a stock pot. Add the vegetable mixture to the beans, then pour in the chicken broth. Mix well. Simmer over low-medium heat, covered, for 2 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally.
