Easy, Tasty Pinto Beans Soup

Hello Darlings,

Remember no one can bring your mood down unless you allow them. So I hope your day is as pleasant as mine. 

In today's post,  I have a new recipe for Pinto beans. For some unexplained reason my local Walmart has stopped carrying the Hurst's Pinto Beans with

 its ham favor pack, and trying to talk to a grocery manager to ask him/her to restock items is nearly impossible.


Nevertheless, we love Hurst's Pinto Beans with its ham favor packet but lacking this favorite product,  I had to come up with a recipe that offered the same tasty pinto bean soup favor that we have come to love over the decade. 



After many trials and errors with different meats and flavorings. I have finally come up with a recipe using plain pinto beans that is so similar in taste to the favor packet provided with the Hurst's Pinto Beans that it is nearly a perfect match.



That said, below is my recipe for pinto beans soup.

  2.     Then drain the beans and add to pot.
