100 g Hatch Chiles
2 tbs Garlic Powder
7 g Dried Red Pepper

14 1/2 oz Diced Tomatoes with Basil Garlic and Oregano

Recipe Directions for Pinto Beans

  1. I make this after Roasting a no skin chicken with no salt. Put all the bones in a pot and simmer several hours. Cool overnight in Fridge then skim fat from top next morning.

  2. I used about 1.5 cups of beans. Pick through for stones and rinse. Add to Stock with water. Bring to boil.

  3. While Beans are coming to boil, chop and add remaining veggies. 2-3 Bay Leaves and remaining Spices.

  4. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer. Simmer for 4-5 hours till beans are soft. I often add some additional spices to taste. Salt would taste great in these, but I make them without any added salt.
