Famous Ranch Beans

Ranch Beans

2 cups dried pinto beans
4 to 6 bacon slices, diced
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Place beans in a colander and wash them in cold running water for 3 minutes, picking over them well to discard any pebbles, broken beans, or beans that are shriveled or discolored.

Place beans in a a large pot and fill it with hot water, 4 inches abbot the level; of the beans.

Add the bacon, bring to a boil, and simmer, covered for 3 to 3-1/2 hours.

Add water as necessary, 1 cup at a time, during the cooking process to keep the beans covered.

For the last hour of cooking uncover the pot to allow the juices to thicken, and add salt and pepper at that time.

Serves: 8 to 10.
