4 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons mustard powder
2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) whole tomatoes, with juice
1/4 to 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
4 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
Salt and pepper

1. In a 5-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Cook onion until translucent, stirring often, 3 minutes. Add garlic, mustard and chili powders, cumin, tomatoes, brown sugar, beans, and 3 cups water.
2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; simmer, stirring occasionally, 50 minutes. Uncover; cook until thick, about 10 minutes more. Stir in vinegar; season with salt and pepper.

These are My Favorite you will never buy a can of Bushes ever again and it is a perfect recipe to do alongside of a brisket of pork but on the the pit. This recipe comes from the Durgin park restaurant in Boston. They have been cooking them this way since the 1st tea party.

Boston Baked Beans

2 1/2-quart bean pot or covered casserole
1 pound Navy or Pea beans
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 pound salt pork
1/2 medium onion -- peeled and uncut
4 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Soak beans overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 325° F. Place the baking soda in a Dutch oven and fill half way with water. Bring to a boil and add the beans. Boil for 10 minutes. Drain beans in a colander and run cold water through them. Set aside.

Dice the salt pork available in the bacon section of the grocery store
into 1-inch squares. Put half of the salt pork on the bottom of the bean pot, along with the onion. Put beans in the pot. Put the remaining salt pork on top of the beans.

Mix the sugar, molasses, mustard, salt and pepper with 3 cups of hot water and pour over the beans. Cover pot with lid and place the pot into the preheated oven. Bake for 6 hours. Check pot periodically to check the amount of liquid. Add water to the beans slowly as needed to keep them moist; do not flood them. Remove the pot from the oven and serve.
Makes about 7 cups
