  • 1 pound Camellia Brand Pinto Beans
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground ancho chile pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 3 dried bay leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Grilled Vegetables
  • Green Rice
  • Sour cream, fresh cilantro, sliced, green onion, lime wedges, and thinly sliced jalapeños, to serve


  1. Rinse and sort beans. Place beans in a large bowl. Add enough water to cover beans by 2 inches. Cover and let stand overnight. Drain beans.
  2. In a large Dutch oven, bring beans and water to cover to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat chili powder, ground ancho chile, and cumin seeds over medium heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add oil, and remove from heat. Add chili powder mixture, salt, bay leaves, and garlic to beans. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until beans are thickened and very tender, 2½ to 3 hours, adding water as needed to keep beans covered. Discard bay leaves before serving.
  4. Divide bean mixture, Grilled Vegetables, and Green Rice among serving bowls. Top with sour cream, cilantro, green onion, jalapeño, and lime wedges.
