Frijoles I

beans, onions, butter, cheese, garlic

Frijoles I -


1 pound dry pinto beans
2 onions, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
3/4 cup butter
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions for Frijoles I Recipe

Soak pinto beans overnight in 1 quart of water.
Place beans into a large saucepan, and add water to cover. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium-low heat until beans are tender, about 1 to 2 hours. Add additional water to the pan as needed to prevent burning.
Mash the beans with a potato masher, and mix in the butter. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and the butter is absorbed. Adjust seasonings to taste.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the bean mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
