How do you season pinto beans?

I have made beans quite a few times but no matter how much I've put different types of seasoning like garlic powder, onion powder, chilli powder, etc they still come out bland. Let me know how you season it and measurements?

Hamhocks or bacon usually help give beans good flavor

I don’t eat pork but i do like a smoky flavor so sometimes I cook them with smoked turkey wings…and add some salt, pepper, cumin, oregano for more flavor.

Forget the powders and add the real thing. Garlic, onions, etc. And hot sauce.
I was going to say my mil adds onions. [@112526,carpediem]

Mesquite and or chili sauce. If the chili sauce isn't sweet perhaps a touch of either honey or agave syrup.
i buy the packs of beans with seasonings and instructions
I just put salt and pepper.

Sauté the bacon /hocks with onion and garlic first to caramelízale then add some veggie or meat stock or boullon cubes/water and beans and a bay leaf and spices. Bring to boil then Simmer until you like the consistency and flavor
