Wiley's Chuckwagon Pecan Pie Recipe

Here's a ranch favorite I love to take to potlucks and calf-ropings. No one has a clue that it's main ingredient is Pinto Beans!

            1 C mashed pinto beans (cooked, unseasoned and well done)
            2 C sugar
            4 eggs
            1/4 lb butter
            2 tbs molasses or dark corn syrup
            2 tsp vanilla
            1/2 tsp salt
Cream sugar and butter. Add well beaten eggs, molasses, and salt. Beat in well-mashed beans (that have been cooked, unseasoned and well done.) Pour into an unbaked pie shell. Pecans may be sprinkled on top before baking. Bake at 350 F until firm. It's easy and delicious!  Happy Trails!
