Recipe

I used to have a love hate relationship with beans, all because of the soaking. I am not sure why it bothered me so much since soaking doesn’t take all that long, but something about it made me avoid beans altogether, unless they came in a can. That was until I discovered you can cook beans in your crock pot without any soaking. Success.

This recipe is a very simple recipe for pinto beans. They will finish off nice and creamy and the vegetables will almost have completely dissolved. You can easily switch out the ingredients or leave out the Poblano if you don’t want any heat. Next time I would also probably add in some tomato paste or a diced fresh tomato as well.
