  1. I cook my beans the same way only i add chicken stock and add my salt toward the end. With the way prices are lately pinto beans are good πŸ‘

  2. Lovely Bacon beans 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🀭🀭

  3. You put celery and carrots !!!??!?!?!?!?!?! WTF…. Leave to white person to do this 😞
    And salt splits the beans to early.
    And the reason you should put salt last is because of the beans being soft,so when you stir it the salt mixes around with the beans getting embedded into the beans cuz they're soft so hard things will get pushed into squishy things thus making it even more flavory… But to each is their own..πŸ˜’

    And she eats the beans with a f$#@!'@ Spoon ! Where the $@*$%$ is the tortillas or bread at least !

  4. How would you adapt this for the instant pot? Would you remove the sauteed bacon/veggies, cook the beans, and add back the sauteed items (plus the wine syrup) once the beans are tender? Or would that result in under-seasoned beans?
