Slow Cooker Black Beans


20151005_124337_001

I remember my mom making homemade beans when I was little.  The house would feel all warm and cozy as the beans simmered on the stove.  Fast forward a few years, and I am now married to a Colombian, who could probably eat rice and beans with every meal.  I’m not big on canned beans and I usually forget to soak beans the night before.  What I love about this recipe is how simple it is! I don’t have to pre-soak the beans and the flavor and texture come out perfectly.  I usually use black beans for this recipe, but you could substitute with other types of beans as well.

STEP ONE: Wash and Prepare the Beans

Sift through the beans and take out any rocks, and the funny or broken beans.  Rinse them off well.

STEP TWO: Throw Everything into a Slow Cooker
