Delicious pinto bean recipe that does not include pork but still has an awesome flavor. My family loves it! Serve over hot cooked rice.
Wash and pick over the beans, then place them in a large bowl. Fill the bowl with cold water, and soak the beans for 6 to 8 hours.
Drain and rinse the beans, then place into a slow cooker. Pour in 8 cups of water. Stir in onion, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and bay leaves. Place the turkey leg into the cooker, cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 hours. Stir in olive oil, and add more water if the beans are beginning to dry out; cook until the beans are very tender, an additional 2 hours.
