    I was surprised to see the Pinto Bean Pie recipe on the internet. I have had the recipe since the late ‘50s or early ‘60s! No one that I have served it to had ever heard of it. They all like it and I had it published in our local cookbook to raise funds for our VFD. Mine came from the Texas Department of Agriculture at the Dallas State Fair many years ago. The old recipes are still the best. I thought I would share this with you.
