Perfect Pintos

Everybody loves to have a good bean recipe under their belt, and after much research, including combining and tweaking recipes, I have finally got mine!  Sorry for the delay, but here it is!

2 c. dried pinto beans, sorted and rinsed.
1/2 c. onion
1/2 c. tomato
1-2 serrano chile, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. each: oregano, cumin pdr, pepper
1 tbsp. chili pdr.
1 tsp. dry cilantro or handful fresh cilantro, chopped
6 c. chicken broth (or 6 c. water & 1/4 c. chicken bouillon)
1 tbsp. bacon grease (optional)

1.  Soak beans overnight, or use quick method (bring to boil, turn off heat and let rest for 1 hour). Drain.
2. Add all ingredients into pressure cooker.  Use per manufacturer instructions.
3. During the last 20 mins., prepare about 1 cup rice, as directed on package. (makes about 2 c. cooked rice)
4. Once beans and rice are cooked, stir rice into beans and serve with desired garnishes (cheese, lime juice, etc.)
