Pinto Beans with Rosemary, Turkey Bacon & Brown Rice

There’s nothing like pinto beans. On a weekend, pour them into a Crockpot and let them cook. This week, I decided to make pinto beans with rosemary and turkey bacon. Easy and delicious.


Pinto Beans (1 bag)

Vegetable or Chicken broth

Turkey bacon=four to five cut up slices

Onions-1 medium

Garlic-4 cloves

Fresh rosemary, Celtic salt, ground pepper, garlic powder, dried parsley

Brown rice



Add all the ingredients into the slow cooker except for the brown rice. Cook the rice separately. There aren’t any measurements. Everything is to taste. I generally cook a one pound bag of pinto beans on high for four hours or on low for six hours.

Once they’re done, ladle all that goodness on a bed or brown rice.



You can anything you want on top, cheese, salsa, or have cornbread on the side. You can even make burritos. Nothing better than hearty pinto beans.

Stay Blessed,

I named it Barbie's Bookmarks because I love literature, and I love documenting things I find important in my life.. big and small. Thus, these are my life's bookmarks. I look forward to sharing them with you and learning about your bookmarks as well.
