Pinto Beans Over the Fire

Over the Fire

Some of you may remember Fred Engel’s COWBOY POINT OF VIEW for making Baked Potatoes. Well Fred has blessed us with another of his fine recipe poems, this time for Pinto Beans over the Fire. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Pinto Beans Over the Fire

Pinto beans over the fire, boiling in the pot
In plenty of water, pre-soaked or not.
Add some some salt to taste when their skins turn pink and they start to break
Then let ‘em boil for 4 to 6 hours, it’s well worth the wait.
Now add a few bacon rinds, cooked or not
And let them add some flavor to what’s cookin’ in the pot.
Then add some some chili powder and a green onion or two
You can add them or not, it’s really up to you.
Of course some chopped fresh garlic will add to the taste
And you can be sure, if there’s any left-over, they won’t go to waste.
See, they’re just as good on the second or third day
When you mash ‘em and fry ‘em, and roll ‘em in a tortilla, the south of the border way.
Then what ever happens after that
Blame it on your horse or your dog, or just fan it away with your ol’ hat!
