Cook up a pot of pinto beans. Here is how I do it:
In a large soup pot (6 to 8 qt) put 3 cups dry beans, 12 cups water and 1 T. salt. Cook for about 2 ½ hours or until soft.
When beans have finished cooking add:
1 lb. or less cooked hamburger, drained
1 can sweet corn, drained
1 can of olives, drained and sliced
1 can regular diced tomatoes or 1 can Rotel Tomates
***note: Rotel Tomatoes are spicy***
2 T taco seasonings
Simmer these ingredients for about 15 minutes or as long as 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. Serve with corn bread or tortilla chips and salad.
