Simmered Pinto Beans with Chipotle Sour Cream

I served these with the Chilaquiles the other night! I did leave off the Chipotle sour cream, and just served them with plain ol’ sour cream. These were good! My 7 year old had 3 servings of them! Again, this didn’t make too much (does my family eat way more than they should??), so next time I would double the recipe.
