Pinto Beans Recipe

4 cups water
2 cups dried pinto beans
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic
2 thick slices of bacon
1 teaspoon cumin

Mix water, beans and onion in 4-quart Dutch oven. Cover and heat to boiling; boil about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 1 hour. Add just enough water to cover beans. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and boil gently, stirring occasionally, until beans are very tender, approximately 2 hours. (Add water during cooking if necessary.) Drain, cover, and refrigerate beans. Use within one week.
