Transcript:How to Make Pinto Bean Pie

Hi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, we're making a pinto bean pie from our Southern Food site.

Ingredients for Pinto Bean Pie

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans - you can use either canned beans or dried beans that have been cooked and you want to keep a little of the cooking liquid
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 3 cups granulated sugar - I happen to be using a natural organic sugar - that's why it's a little brown, but feel free to use regular sugar
  • 1-1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 deep dish or 3 regular pie crusts

Instructions for Making Pinto Bean Pie

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.Mash the pinto beans slightly with a fork. Set aside.Now beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the melted butter, the sugar, the mashed pinto beans and their liquid, the coconut and the chopped pecans. And give it all a good stir. This is your pie filling, so make sure the mixture is well-combined.Now pour the filling into the pie shells - there's no need to pre-bake the pie shells. And since i"m using deep dish crusts, I only need two. If I were using regular pie crusts, I would need three.Bake the pies for 1 hour or until the crust is golden and the filling is set. And here is your pinto bean pie.
