This has got me more excited than I don't know what, but I'm ridiculous excited!!! This makes a LOT of beans. I know exactly what is in them. They are fat free. AND... the best part.... This huge tub cost only $2.50 to make!!!
I have said before how many bean burritos I eat... again.... this makes me so happy :)
***Soak your beans overnight before making these! Click here to see why.
Dry pinto beans (2-3 lbs)
a couple cloves of garlic
1/2 (or more) of an onion
Cover with water and crock on high for 8 hours.
For extra flavor, Add:
**Add a couple bouillon cubes (beef or chicken). *Great Tip thanks to Anjy VerPlanck!
Stir every once in a while and in the first couple hours if you notice the water is going away, add more. (This isn't really a situation where you can leave for the whole day). The water was *gone* about an hour after I started it and then once I added more water, it was fine.
