Ingredients:1 lb dry pinto beans
8 c water
2/3 c Pace picante sauce (spice level of your choosing)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves (maybe 3?) garlic, minced
1 Tbsp salt (but not quite a WHOLE Tbsp)
1/4 c butter
Preparation:Sort and wash beans. Saute onion and garlic in small amount of oil in a large soup pot. When they are translucent, add water, beans, picante sauce, and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover. Simmer 3-4 hours until beans are tender and easy to mash. Drain beans, reserving liquid. Return beans to pot, add butter and a couple of spoonfuls of extra picante sauce. Mash beans with a potato masher until you reach the consistancy you like. If beans are dry, add reserved cooking liquid. Season to taste and garnish with shredded cheese.
Notes:Leftover cooking liquid also makes and excellent soup base.

3-4 hours are totally worth it, and you don't have to pay attention to them, so you can go watch a movie or something and just set a timer. Mmmmm so good.
