I've made these a couple of times and love them! My tweaks are to use both serranos and jalapeños, and to toss a frozen smoked turkey leg in the pot instead of dealing with the chorizo/bacon. Makes it so easy. Just shred the turkey up when it's all done and throw the meat back in with the beans. Smokey and delicious.

Made them with pinto beans. They were done and on the plate in a snap! Oh so yummy and fast!

Classic recipe, classic flavors, simple, and delicious. Using pinto beans is a must, and I love that I don't have to soak them overnight.

These beans turned out great. I only made a half recipe, since I am the only one who will eat beans :-( at my house. I did change the order of the instructions. I cooked the beans 1st, and did the onion, garlic, bacon, tomato mix in a saute pan while the beans were cooking. This saves time overall on recipe. I added a pinch of cumin and chili powder to my recipe and cut the salt in half. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
