  • 1 pound (455 g) dried pinto beans
  • ¼ cup (40 g) chopped onion
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic

Cover pinto beans with 3 inches (7.5 cm) of boiling water in large pot. Add onion and garlic. Cover and bake at 250°F (120°C, gas mark ½) until beans are cooked, 2 to 2½ hours. Keep warm. Cook bacon with jalapeño and scallions over low heat in large sauté pan until bacon is crisp. Add squash and broth. Cover and cook until squash is just tender, about 30 minutes.
