Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Pinto Bean Stew

I find soaking to be optional - sort the beans well.  If you do soak the beans, KEEP the water you soak them in and use it as part of the 6 cups in the recipe.  

1 Pound Dry Pinto Beans
6 Cups water
2 Tbl Minced Scallion
1 Cup Bell Pepper, diced
3/4 Cup Sliced Carrot
2 Cups Frozen Corn, thawed
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tbl Chili Powder
2 Tsp Cumin
2 Tbl Lime Juice
1 1/2 Tsp Salt

Combine all ingredients except juice and salt in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker.  Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Keep an eye on the liquid and add HOT water if the liquid drops below the beans.  Half an hour before serving, add lime juice.  Taste.  Add salt if necessary.
