1 pound dried pinto beans
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1-2 jalapeños, diced
1 ham hock (8 to 10 ounces)
1 1⁄2 tablespoons dried cilantro
½ tablespoon Red River Ranch Original Seasoning
½ tablespoon Mesquite Seasoning

1. Pour the beans into a large soup pot. Pour enough water over the beans until they are covered by about 2 – 3 inches.
2. Add the onion, jalapeño, ham hock, and cilantro. Cook over high heat until the mixture reaches a rolling boil, stirring occasionally.
3. Cover and boil hard for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. As soon as the beans are boiling, you may need to add more warm water to keep them slightly covered and throughout the cooking process.
4. Reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the spices. Cover and simmer for 11/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the beans soften. Season again to taste, if necessary.

I was told by a abuelita to soak them over night to get that gas out.

Rodney Wilkerson · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Add a tablespoon of peanut butter. It will dissipate, you can't taste but it takes away the gas. I also like to add a can of whole kernel corn to my pinto beans.

Nothing like a big old pot of pintos, with cornbread, fried tators, home made slaw and onions! I can cook a mean pot of beans too. : )

Kike Zamo · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I've been eating beans for 35 years never have I thought of seasoning my beans. I just learned something new. Thank you. Mr Rollins

"Beans, beans the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot, the more you toot, the better you feel, so eat beans at every meal! "

Nancy Remling · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I grew up on beans and cornbread. We were poor but momma always knew what to cook. We never went hungry. I wasn’t introduced to fast food until I went to college.

FarOutWest · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

my girlfriend ate this after I made it last time, she farted up a storm!!!

David Ethridge · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

We don't know each other yet, but we have the same background in a lot of ways. I want to ask for you and your lovely wife to say a prayer or two for my VERY GOOD FRIEND, JIM HILL. HE is not in good shape and in the hospital. He is my last BESTEST good friend and he taught me how to make a killer pot of beans for the snake hunt!!

Tim Allen · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Beans are great, as they give u the energy and protein to make u big and strong, especially if served with cornbread and greens.

Kenny H · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

If you want to get rid of the gas you first wash the beans good and then soak the beans in a big covered pot of water for a day or two depending upon the outside temperature stiring them occasionally and the water will ferment the enzymes off the hulls! You will see a white foam on top of the water! This is the enzymes from the bean hulls that give you the gas. Then wash the beans thou-rally, then add your water and ingredients and cook them and they will not give you the raging farts after that!

Jeanette Roller · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Making this recipe for the third time now. Great recipe, always comes out just the way my momma used to make.

Danny Burnett · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Beans,onion and cornbread will stick to your ribs

Soak in baking soda water over night, rinse off, add water, cook

widow maker · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I have laughed really hard 😂 great video. Thank you so much Cowboy. Lol God Bless.

alohathaxted · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Sorry, you soak the beans and throw out the water afterwards. That gets rid of the fart chemicals.

Iván Hernández · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

After this… watching people in a regular kitchen is just not enough 😅

Joey Woodcock501 · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Hey Kent I'm loving the videos you and your wife do. Keep up the good work. Just a little question for ya. What size of jug you got there for ya hot water is it a 2 or a 4 quart cup? Take care my friend happy trails

Allen White · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I love me some Pintos, but I do not aways get to use ham hock, so I have made them with smoked sausage and even put in some skinned diced potato in with them, which my wife never had before and she loved it

Steven Stone · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

This sure beats the Food Network  where they are all flashing "Devils Horns"  and are transgender … and you don't know it .

A J · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Interesting about the Anasazi Beans, I was curious & looked them up, will have to definitely try them, with a huge pan of cornbread, smothered with butter. Like the fact they do not make you so gassy.
We do not want to destroy that Ozone layer. Lol

troynov1965 · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Pinto beans is prolly the most one food i have eaten in my life. We always had pintos and cornbread growing up and still to this day eat them at least once a week. During the winter I always keep a pot cooked.

mrcoog3k · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

To get rid of the gas, I pour me some Coke in the beans when done. If you can put root beer in taters, then what's a little co-cola in beans? Also, may not be cowboy, but I do love me some pork sausage in my pintos, Cook up a mess of mustard and turnip greens, and some corn bread, and man! That's a triple happy dance!!

Land & Service Co. · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

A lot of help beans are at the top. I have been putting a little flower at the end to thicken it up. Thank you sir

Stephen Graham · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

there is no one that loves pinto beans more than me.but a friend of mine brought me some that I think I like it even better than pintos they are called yellow eyes .

So much info!!! I am guilty of adding cold water after they have been boiling. Thanks

Pamie Forte · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

May I suggest a can of good dark Beer and a few chopped fresh Tomatoes to your recipe? Let me tell you – it kickin' good! 🙂

GaryRPerlich · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Funny how the dog even looked guilty.

Tim Hooper · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Beans and cornbread with a thick slice of onion. Yum!

goat 68 · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

My great aunt added a pinch of sugar to help de- fart the beans

Jessie Sherman · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I appreciate and thoroughly enjoy your videos. I wish you and yours a safe and happy new year. I look forward to seeing new videos in 2019. I just purchased your cookbook, and am waiting with anticipation to receive it and use some of your recipes.

Jessie Sherman · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Nothing better than cowboy cast iron cooking with dutch ovens, open fire, and cast iron skillets.

Jessie Sherman · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

It is nice to see people who still cook like myself. The country, cowboy way. I love every one of Kents videos, and learn something new every video i watch. Went and bought my first cowboy coffee pot today. Will tell you if it was a good purchase off EBAy or not. I am hoping it was.

Aron Jorge · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I know of no secret way to get them little farters out, and I have tried many methods. I don't even care much for pinto's, but I will garantee the more often you eat them, the less gas you will have. Your system gets used to the beans and completely digests them. But you will need to eat them 4 or more times a week. Par-boiling the beans and changing the water does not help with the gas problem at all. Adding baking soda does not help. Adding coke or soft drinks does not help. I was given a miniture ladder, but no help there. Yep, cooking beans over a year old may take three times longer to tender, why??? Hell, I don't know, but it does.

mel mede · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Anyone that knows beans, about how to cook beans, to always check for stones.

Sunflower Jules · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Beans beans good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you fart! The more you fart, the better you feel. So let’s have beans for every meal! 🤗🥣 Great video as always! Thanks for posting!

Forrest Hedrick · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

Kent, I think you found the only solution to "denaturing" beans. Blame the Dawg. I bet the ride home with the beagle full of beans was interesting.

Patrick Burchett · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I can't count that high. I'm a truck driver. So my beans are fartey.😂🤣

Gilbert Gonzalez · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am

I love the liquor of the pinto beans. To make tortilla soup! Then with the dry beans; I fry them. There are two thing's of goodness about beans. Thank's! 🎺🎄🎅Merry Christmas!"" P.S. next time put some pork crackling in them beans. I am sure that you like them.

Drunk Cultural history · May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am
