Pinto Beans in slow cooker?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I'm super ashamed to admit this since my family is from Mexico and we eat very traditional Mexican food, but I have never made beans (frijoles). Any way, I was told I can make them in a slow cooker, but I'm not sure how much water I would need or even how many cups of beans I would need.

 

I'm making enough beans to feed about 12 people (it's only a side dish, so I don't need too much). Does any one have a suggestion of how many cups to use? Now, do I still need to soak the beans the night before? And my last question, if I use my slow cooker to make them how many cups of water should I use?

 

I'm making these tomorrow night, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Ingredients

 

* 1 pound dry pinto beans

* 1 teaspoon chili powder

* 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

* 1/2 pound ham hocks, or 1/4 pound streak o' lean

* 4 cups water

* 1 onion, chopped

* House Seasoning, recipe follows

 

Directions

 

Wash the beans and soak overnight in cold water. Drain the beans and dump into slow cooker. Stir in chili powder and oregano.

 

If using ham hock: Pre-soak ham in a separate pot, for at least 2, or refrigerated up to 24 hours, depending on how salty you want your stock to be. Add ham hock to slow cooker with beans and pour in ham soaking liquid. Add more water until ham hock is completely covered.

 

If using streak o' lean: Cut into cubes, brown in a skillet, and place the meat and any rendered fat in the slow cooker with beans. Pour 4 cups water into pot.

 

Add onion to slow cooker with beans and meat. Stir well. Season, to taste, with House Seasoning, cover the pot, and cook on high until beans are very tender, about 5 hours.

House Seasoning:

 

1 cup salt

 

1/4 cup black pepper

 

1/4 cup garlic powder

 

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
