Pinto Beans with Bacon and ScallionsSource: Everyday Food by Martha Stewart, adapted by Amy's New Kitchen
1 tsp vegetable oil
8 slices bacon, cut into 1/4" pieces
3 bunches scallions, sliced crosswise, separate white and green parts
2 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Heat 1 tsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon pieces and cook, stirring often until bacon is golden brown. Add scallion whites and continue to cook until softened. Add 2 cans pinto beans and 1 cup water and season with salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until slightly thickened. Top with scallion greens and serve immediately.
Mmmmm. Once I added some extra bacon and scallions to the original recipe it was delicious! Made everyone happy and was a perfect side to our bbq ribs for Father's Day!
