Crockpot Black Beans

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Not to be confused with our Crockpot Black Bean Soup, THIS recipe is a super-simple way to cook dry black beans. And they are seasoned to perfection if I do say so myself (and I do say so).


Crockpot Black Beans
1 16 oz. bag dry black beans
3 cups water
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, minced
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin
 
  1. Wash the dry beans. Place them into a pot and cover with at least 2 inches of water. Let them soak 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain water and place the drained beans in a crockpot. Add the remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
Notes: Serve topped with salsa, shredded cheese, chopped green onions, or truthfully ALL BY THEMSELVES (they are that good).

Do you need to soak the beans in the fridge?

No, I usually soak them (covered) on the countertop or on the cooktop. If you soak them in the fridge, then they are that much colder when you start the cooking process.

Oh okay, thank you!
