Charro Beans (Gluten Free)

  • 1 can Bush's pinto beans
  • 1/2cup chicken broth (Swanson's 99% fat free is GF)
  • 4 slices diced and cooked GF bacon
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 diced jalapeno
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes or salsa
  • If you like things spicy add a dash or two of cayenne pepper
Add pinto beans and chicken broth to pan and start to cook on medium. Meanwhile cook bacon until almost crispy. Add onion, garlic and jalapeno and cook until soft. 

Add the bacon/onion/garlic/pepper to the pot of beans and add the diced tomatoes (add cayenne now if you're using it). Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently.

*As with all our gluten free recipes, check each individual ingredient you buy for gluten free confirmation.
