Flavorful, Versatile Pinto Beans That Cook All Day
Seasoned pinto beans give you a versatile, zesty way to get more fiber and protein in your family’s diet. This slow cooker variety uses dried beans, making it a lot more cost effective and lower in sodium than using canned beans. Prepare a batch for use in tostadas, burritos or Mexican-style scrambled eggs, or to serve solo as a side dish. They eat just as well within a dish as they do on their own.
Total Time: 7 to 9 hours | Prep Time: 2 minutes | Serves: 6
- 1 pound dried pinto beans (about 2 1/2 cups), rinsed and drained
- 7 1/2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
- 1/4 cup ground black pepper
- Combine all of the ingredients in your slow cooker, and then stir them together.
- Place the lid on the cooker and cook the beans on low for 7 to 9 hours, or until the beans are soft but not falling apart.
- Turn the cooker off, and serve the beans warm, over rice or rolled up in tortillas for burritos.
