Pinto Beans Soup Recipe

Here's a recipe for the most delicious Pinto Beans Soup you will ever eat. For this recipe you will need a cheesecloth bag or cheese cloth to make a bag.

For your Pinto Beans Soup Recipe You Will Need

1. 2 Pounds of Dry Pinto Beans

2. 2 Hogs Feet cleaned from the Grocery Store, Wal-Mart sells these.

3. 1 Tablespoon Salt

4. 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

5. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper

6. 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder

Look your pinto beans for rocks etc and wash well and drain.

Now place your Hogs Feet into a cheese cloth bag and make sure you have it tied or fastened so it can not come loose in the pot. Put all your ingredients into a stock pot that you know does not stick easily.

Add in all your other ingredients and cover your beans and pig feet to just above your beans with water. Bring your pot to a boil and once you have it boiling well reduce your heat to low to medium. You will want to stir your beans often and if your water gets low you will want to add more water.

You want to cook your beans down until the soup on your beans is thick and brown. Once you see that the Hogs Feet in the cheese cloth bag are done fish it out and discard.

And you have just made an old south Soul Food Classic. I know of at least one major restaurant chain that cooks their pinto beans exactly this way. And Pinto Bean Soup cooked this way makes some of the most delicious Pinto Beans you will ever eat.

You can serve your pinto beans with Mexican or Cheddar Cheese shredded on the side, chopped sweet purple onion, or sour cream. All of these go great with Pintos. You may want to serve your pintos over squares of corn bread.

      You can use ham hocks also but they just don't give the flavor that hogs feet do. If you ever ate them you would cook them from now on. I had them again last night and they are so delicious. Especially served over white rice.
