Clean and rinse pinto beans. Soak overnight in cold water to cover well.

bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook about 90 minutes or
until beans are tender. Add salt to taste and garnish with sliced onion.

These are the beans that should never be cooked in the chili. These are the
beans that should be added to the chili when ther is chili and eaten
without the chili on many occasions when there is no chili. Like our
black-eyed pea recipe, this is a vegetarian recipe simply because so many
vegetarians frequent the restaurant. And after all, our chili recipe is not
even slightly vegetarian.
