Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you....
I hear this song EVERY time I make beans.  And no, not from my children. 
1 package pinto beans - rinsed off
1 package of salt pork
2 cans stewed tomatoes - cut up with kitchen scissor while still in the can (really, I'm not joking)
5-7 fresh roasted green chilis - chopped
(or 2 cans if you can't find fresh)
1 bunch cilantro - chopped

Some people believe you need to soak beans overnight...blah, blah, blah.  Not me.  Toss your beans and salt pork in a Dutch oven, fill with water. Cook on high heat and boil for the 1st hour.  You will need to refill the water a couple of times. After an hour of boiling reduce heat.  Put lid on and continue cooking for 6-7 more hours, adding water as necessary.  Just before serving add stewed tomatoes, green chilis and cilantro.

They really are that easy.
