This is my favorite way to make quick and easy “Charro Beans” without compromising flavor. This recipe has been approve by my friends are family members over the years. The secret is to find the perfect canned beans, to me the HEB beans are the cleanest and prettiest canned pinto beans I’ve had. They also have a very mild flavor, you cannot tell they came from a can so everybody is going to think it took hours to make them. If would not tell them our secret.
Every family has their own recipe, some add pork belly, chorizo, wieners, even potatoes but I prefer just some fatty bacon.
Just fry the bacon until slightly brown, remove excess of fat, add the pico de gallo and cook until tender. See, you could even buy pico de gallo at the store! don’t you love shortcuts?
I like to tie the bundle of cilantro with cooking twine for easy removal. I don’t like wilted cilantro but if you choose to leave it in is totally fine. I chop some fresh cilantro and add it just before serving. Super easy! You are going to impress with this recipe.
