Slow Cooker Pinto Beans

I love beans. They are good for you, you can do all kinds of things with them, and they cost barely anything.

But every time I try to make them on the stove they come out half done and half hard. So I decided to try a crock pot and went out to find a recipe. I got this from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of Dried Pinto Beans (2.5 cups, rinsed, and picked over for tiny stones)
  • 7.5 Cups of Water
  • 1 Teaspoon of Crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons of Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Black Pepper

Directions:

  1. Pick over the beans, removing small stones.
  2. Rinse the beans in a colander
  3. Put beans, water, red pepper, salt, and black pepper into the crock pot.
  4. Cover and cook on low until the beans are tender (7-9 hours).

Thoughts After Cooking:

These were amazing! And I loved every moment of eating them.
