Slow Cooking Thursday: Pinto Beans



Be sure to join in with Sandra for her Slow Cooking Thursday. Thanks for hosting Sandra!

Pinto Beans



There's really not a recipe involved to cook pinto beans in the crock pot. I soaked my beans overnight, then put them in the crockpot on high for an hour. Then I turned it to low and I'll let the beans cook until later this evening when I get home from work.




Tonight's dinner will be beans and fried potatoes. The leftover beans we will use for tostados, burritos, or maybe red beans and rice. Dried beans are such an economical food that can be used in so many different recipes. I try to keep some on hand all the time.

I've just started cooking them like this to have on hand as well. I'm with you - it's a great way to be cost friendly, but healthy too!

Thanks for stopping by. Love your recipe ideal! When you put your beans into the crock pot, do you add any water?
