Ingredients
  Mexican beans/Pinto beans 1 Pound, dried (Pink)
  Water 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Bacon fat/Ham fat /lard 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Wash the beans and put in kettle.
Add the water (Unless beans are very old and hard, soaking is not necessary.)
Cook until tender but not mushy, for 2 hours or more; add the salt.
Melt the lard in a heavy pot (the Mexicans use a cazuela, a large earthenware pot with sloping sides and rounded bottom).
Then add the beans, a few at a time, mashing them with a spoon and adding a little of the bean liquid.
Continue until all the beans and liquid are used; then cook and stir until the mixture becomes thick.
Makes 6 servings.
