Copycat Recipe

1 lb dried pinto bean
6 strips bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 medium fresh plum tomatoes, chopped
2 medium onions, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 (12 ounce) can beer (chef’s choice)
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
salt and pepper

Rinse and pick over beans.
Bring the beans to a boil in a large pot of water and cook over medium heat for 1½ to 2 hours until they tender but still firm.
Before the beans are done, fry the bacon in a large skillet until halfway cooked.
Add garlic, tomatoes, onions, and green pepper; continue cooking with bacon until the bacon crisp.
Add a can of beer to bacon mixture and simmer a few additional minutes, or longer if you like your beans softer.
Add chopped cilantro and jalapenos; combine everything in one large pot.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
