Mexican Black Beans

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Crockpot

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Black beans
  • 1 Water to cover
  • 1/4 Cup, chopped fine Onion
  • 1 ts Cooking oil
  • 1 ts Cooking oil
  • 1/2 Chopped fine Onion
  • 1/4 Cup, chopped Bell pepper
  • 3 Cloves, diced Garlic
  • 1 Salt to taste


Wash the beans. Put A-D in a large pot and cook until tender. Then saute
E-H in a small pan, and add to the beans. Salt to taste and cook about an
hour more.

This is a highly modified recipe out of a Mexican cookbook. The author
suggested a crock pot for about 10 hours. It didn't get the beans tender
so I put it in a large pot and simmered the beans about an hour. The author
also said not to soak the beans over night, because that would give the
beans a strong flavor. I was doubtful, but that advice seems to be right.

I also made some nachos with it. I used about half a cup of cooked beans
after the first step (A-D). I mashed them with a spoon, and fried in
margarine in a small skillet with a few diced onions. I sauteed some ground
turkey with taco seasoning, and then layered bean paste, turkey, and
cheddar cheese on chips. Very good. I am thinking of making up a batch of
beans just to make black bean paste.
