Directions:
Cook pinto beans in crockpot with water. ( about 1 lb of pinto beans to 3 cups of water cooking 8-10 hours on high in crockpot). Take the slab of bacon and slice into one inch portions. As you fry the bacon, separate it and you will then have large bacon bits. Fry bacon (do not remove bacon grease) and add diced tomatoes and sauté for a few minutes, then add cilantro and mix for 30 seconds and add all this mixture to pot of cooked beans. Easy to cook pinto beans in crockpot and when done add bacon mixture.

Rinse the beans before placing in crockpot. No need to soak them.

Every slow cooker is a bit different, you may need to add more water. at start water should cover beans by about 2 inches.
