Canning Pinto beans

I can a lot of pinto beans in the winter then when we are so busy come spring and fall and are not getting in until late I can open a couple jars of beans ands have supper there are two ways that I do them one with bacon and one with out bacon the ones with out bacon I can use for refried beans and in chili the ones with the bacon I just warm them up to eat they already have the seasonings in them and are ready to go.
I like this recipe because there is no need to pre-soak the beans.


Canning Pinto Beans with Bacon
In a quart Jar put
1/2 slice of bacon
¼ cup chopped onion
1 ½ tsp Salt
¼ tea Onion Salt
½ tsp. Garlic powder
½ tsp chili powder
1 1/3 cup dry pinto beans

Fill Jars with boiling water to 1 inch of top seal and pressure for 90 min at 15 pounds of pressure. ( this is for altitudes above 6000 to 8000 feet)
For pints use ¾ beans and process for 75 minutes

Canning Pinto beans with out bacon
In a quart Jar put
1 ½ tsp salt
¼ tsp. onion salt
½ tsp. garlic
½ tsp Chili powder ( optional)
1 1/3 cups dry pinto beans


Fill Jars with boiling water to 1 inch of top seal and pressure for 75 min at 15 pounds of pressure. ( this is for altitudes above 6000 to 8000 feet)
For pints use ¾ cup beans and process for 50 minutes
This can be used in any recipe calling for canned beans.

  1. In your recipe "Canning Pinto Beans with Bacon" that is no measurement for the bacon (( unless this is the "low fat" recipe - HAHA )). Could you please describe how you prepare the bacon and how much you put in each jar? Thanks.

    1. Oh goodness, I never realized I hadn’t put the bacon in the recipe lol. I will go back and fix it . I put half a slice of bacon per quart.

  2. These recipes seem to use more salt than I normally use. Will cutting the quantity of salt affect anything other than taste? Thanks!

    1. No, decreasing the salt will not hurt anything.
