Crock Pot Pinto Beans

Crock Pot Pinto Beans

I start them the night before, then add the other ingredients and start the crock pot before I go to work in the morning. I cook Black eye peas the same way, omitting the chili powder.

1 lb. Dried Pinto Beans
2 Tbs. Dried Onion Flakes
2 Beef Bullion Cubes
1 tsp. Salt
1 Tbs. Chili Powder

Wash beans in several changes of water, removing undesirable beans. Soak the beans overnight (I have heard this takes out the gas, does anyone know?) The next morning drain and rinse the beans and cover with water 2 inches above the top of the beans. Add the onion flakes, Bullion, Chili Powder and Salt. Cook on Low for 8 hours.

Hi JanT1053,

Some people seems to think soaking the beans or peas overnight takes the gas out of them but I always put a small pinch of baking soda in them while I am cooking them and it does seem to work for the gas. I will try these next week and let you know how they are . but they sound so yummy.
