I loved my Grandma Sadie. When she passed, I inherited her cookbooks, one of which was titled, "From the Queen's Kitchen: A Collection of Pinto Bean Recipes from Cortez, Colorado" This cookbook was published in 1967 but encompasses a time span from 1958 to 1967. All recipes were taste tested during the Four Corners Harvest Festival. This recipe won the Blue Ribbon in 1959 and was submitted by a Mrs. Virgil Bane of Cortez, CO. I don't remember Grandma ever making this recipe, but I had to try it. It does, surprisingly, taste like pecan pie!
