"Super easy beans! No more accidents. This method is very convenient, obviously you can use your clay pot(which is best, but that’s another story)...Just put them in your slow cooker, and use your time to do something else. You can soak you beans for two hours or over night before cooking them, to speed up the process. If you do so, rinse that water off. This pot of beans can make several recipes."

  • Step 3/6

    Put the beans in the slow cooker with 6 cups of water + the rest of the ingredients. But no the salt. (Some people say, is better to add it later) I honestly, always put all together 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Step 4/6

    • ¼ tbsp Salt

    Half way the cooking process you can add the salt.

  • Step 5/6

    Let them cook in high for 4-5 hours or in slow 6-8 hours. I’ll all depends on the freshness of the beans. I like to put them in the morning, so for dinner there’s a fresh batch of home cook “frijoles de la olla” (slow version)

    Taste the salt and check the amount of broth, if everything is good to you by now, they’re ready! Eat some right away! Let them cool before refrigerate them. Beans also freeze beautifully. You won’t need to buy can beans anymore! These are the staple of Mexican Cuisine!
