Preparing The Pinto Beans
Before cooking your pinto beans, it is important to properly prepare them. Start by sorting through the beans to remove any stones or other debris. Rinse the beans thoroughly with cool water, and then soak them in a bowl of cold water for at least four hours or overnight.

Once the beans have been soaked and prepared, it is time to cook them. Place the beans in a large pot and cover them with enough water to cover them by at least 2 inches. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer the beans for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Once the beans have cooked for the desired amount of time, add in any seasonings you wish to use. Popular options include garlic, onions, cumin, chili powder, and oregano. Add in enough seasonings to give your pinto beans the desired flavor.
