Add together in large soup pot: 2 pounds dried pinto beans, rinsed, 2 ham hawks, 1 onion, chopped, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, salt and pepper, 3 bay leaves, 6+ cups water, adding as needed.

Some people soak their beans, I throw everything into the pot and say “go!”.

I did not take a picture of them cooking in the pot, or while filling the jars. Let us skip right to jars in pot then, shall we?

11 pounds pressure for 75 minutes.

While the bean soup was being pressure canned I prepared the remaining soup as refried beans for burritos.

And here we are, 6 lovely pints of really good pinto bean soup for the pantry.
