3. Every so often I'll go on a bean bender, and pinto beans are my downfall.

I cook them in the slow cooker too, except at a higher heat and for longer (up to 10 hours on high), and I use chicken stock as the only liquid and toss a roughly chopped onion in. I've never used bacon, though, but it sounds wonderful! Thanks for the idea.

Invariably the beans end up mashed into refried beans with red pepper flakes, lots of garlic and often chorizo. I can't believe I never thought of adding bacon. Well, that's why I hang out here, I suppose. Lots of great ideas!
