Spicy Pinto Beans with Jalapeno, Oregano and Cumin

I like a bit of spice with my beans and these pintos are right up my alley! These make a great side dish to tacos or even chicken and I also like to wrap them in a tortilla with cheese for a quick snack.  They can even be added to your favorite chili recipe for an extra kick!

Any way you decide to eat them, just get them all in your mouth…and don’t spill the beans!
