Abbey’s Barbecued Pinto Beans

By Athena Shlemon, Owner/Chef, Abbey's Real Texas Bar-B-Q — Mira Mesa

I'm a rice person. Rice and beans are my favorite things to eat. I mix them up and eat them together.

Anybody can make this recipe. It's an easy recipe, and it's one of our best sellers at the restaurant. We've been serving this dish for the past 16 years. You can just put all the ingredients together and do things you have to do for two hours. When you come back, stir them, and you're ready to eat.

You can use your favorite bottled barbecue sauce, preferably one that has a smoky flavor. We are not going to give away the recipe for our sauce because it's our secret.

Beer and soda are good beverages to serve with this dish.

HOW TO DO IT

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix together the onion, bell pepper, barbecue sauce, chili powder, and salt and let sit. Rinse the pinto beans thoroughly and place beans and water in large covered baking dish. Bake for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Remove from oven and stir in the sauce mixture. Serve immediately.

This recipe serves 8 to 10 as a side dish.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 an onion, chopped
1/4- 1/2 of a green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
>2 tablespoons salt
1 pound of pinto beans
6 cups of water
