Cook up some pinto beans with an onion, a ham hock and chili powder. Eat as is or turn them into refried beans.
could also use a few strips of bacon
Put the beans in a pot, remembering that they will swell to about 3 times their dried state once cooked. Cover with two inches of water.
Add the onion, chili powder, and ham hock. Bring to a boil, stir everything, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover loosely and cook until done.
Mine took about 3-4 hours. If you've soaked the beans overnight, they'll take about half that time.
