Pinto beans are filling, budget friendly, and quite tasty if done right. This is my all time favorite recipe for perfect pinto beans. Enjoy!

2 lbs. pinto beans
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp. cumin powder
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 whole jalapenos
1 lb. saltpork, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 gallon of water

Sort and clean pinto beans. Combine all ingredients in a large covered pot. Cook, covered, on medium low heat 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Be sure to stir often. Add 2 to 4 cups of water, depending on the size of the cook pot. Cook on high heat 30 minutes longer, stirring every five minutes.  If you want a thicker broth, remove the lid for the last 30 minutes of cooking.
