Ingredients

  • Dry pinto beans
  • Boneless pork shoulder roast, with fat trimmed, chopped
  • 2 Tbls chili powder
  • 1 Tbls cumin powder
  • 1 tsp oregano leaves
  • 1 can diced green chilies (6 oz)
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1/4 t red chili flakes
  • Cooking Directions

    Clean and rinse dry pinto beans and put into Crock-Pot.

    Add boneless pork shoulder roast with fat trimmed, 3 large cloves of garlic, chopped 2 Tbls chili powder, 1 Tbls cumin powder, 1 tsp oregano leaves, crushed in the palm of your hand, 1 6 oz can diced green chilies -- mild/medium hot -- 3 tsp salt, 1/4 t red chili flakes (more if you like it spicy).

    Cover roast — barely — with chicken broth and mix by turning roast over a couple of times without bringing dry beans to the top of the crock.

    Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 12 hours (can be made before bed to shred meat and mush beans in the morning before work to put in fridge for dinner or before a great lunch meal).

    When beans and meat are pull-apart tender, remove meat and shred with a fork -- removing fat as you go.

    Use a potato masher to mush beans and remaining fluid, if any. Add shredded pork and mix.

    Taste for appropriate saltiness and spices. This is a great crowd pleaser.

    I've always made it like a great individual nacho volcano -- Fritos at the bottom, Chilupe, sour cream shredded lettuce, chopped onion, chopped avocado, slice olives, salsa and yellow cheese with a sprig or two of cilantro! Great leftovers for burritos, tacos, tostadas.
