I was really craving pinto beans earlier this week. Yes, weird craving…but I like this recipe that came out of it!
1 bag pinto beans, soaked for 24 hours and then cooked for 2 hours
1 tbsp chicken base (4 cubes boullion), or 1 liter chicken stock
1 tbsp cumin
1 small onion, diced
1 12oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp garlic, diced
1 small bunch cilantro, washed and chopped
½ cup red wine
Drain pinto beans, then add chicken stock (or base/boullion and a liter of water)
Add remaining ingredients except for cilantro and wine and simmer for 30 more minutes.
Add cilantro and red wine, take off heat.
Garnish with more cilantro if desired, and add salt and pepper to taste.
