We take a shortcut to the rich, deep flavor of slow-simmered beans by starting with a quick sofrito--aromatics sautéed until tender with tomato and vinegar--and adding canned pinto beans. The result is better than any seasoned bean you'll find in a can.


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 (15-oz.) can unsalted pinto beans, rinsed and drained
