How do I properly cook and season pinto beans?

    To cook and season pinto beans, start by rinsing and soaking the beans overnight. Drain and rinse them before placing them in a pot with fresh water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until the beans are tender. Season with salt, garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder for a classic flavor profile. You can also add diced onions, jalapeños, and cilantro for additional depth. For a smoky taste, consider adding a ham hock or smoked sausage during cooking. Adjust the seasonings to taste, and serve the pinto beans as a side dish, in burritos, or as part of various recipes.
