Mrs. Crenshaw's Pinto Beans
810 mins (prep 30, cooking 780)
15 ingredients
4 servings
I spent years trying to replicate my mother's pinto beans, but there was always something missing. I finally came across this recipe in a 1955 Texas cookbook and it's got to be where mom (a Texan) got the recipe. Oh, the missing ingredient, maple syrup!Time required includes soaking time for beans.
