Pinto Beans with Bacon and Scallions

Source: Everyday Food, June 2010


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 3 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced crosswise, separating white and green parts
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) pinto beans
  • 1 cup water
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Heat oil over medium-high. Add bacon, and cook, stirring often, until golden brown and almost crisp, about 3 minutes. Add scallion whites and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add pinto beans and water, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve topped with scallion greens.
