2 cups dried pinto beans
2 cups minced yellow onions
1/4 cup pure chili powder
3 tablespoons salt
1 cup bacon ends, chopped
Wash the beans and sort through them to remove any foreign particles and broken beans. In a crock pot or slow cooker, cover beans with cold water by 6 inches and soak overnight.
Be sure the beans remain covered with water during the soaking process.
The next day, drain and refill the water. Add the onions, chile powder and bacon and stir to blend. Set the beans on the crock pot's HIGH setting until they simmer, then switch to LOW.
From time to time check and stir the beans. After beans soften, add the salt. If necessary, add water. Cook for 8 hours.
