I usually keep some leftover drained pintos on hand for a quick and easy Huevos Rancheros breakfast. I use a flour tortilla for convenience, with some heated pintos over it (I nuke 'em for this), then topped with cheese and thick and chunky salsa, then the eggs on top, and dressed with some hot sauce. Best damn breakfast ever, and it can hold me until dinner.
Huevos Rancheros breakfast with pintos, cheese, eggs, and salsa sounds great!
Where I live, the natives cook pinto beans with smoked ham hock and salt and pepper. They never add garlic or cumin. Many times they are served with stewed tomatoes and we mix the beans and tomatoes at the table.
