One of my favorite slow cooker recipe for pinto beans
Slow cooker pinto beans
S1 pound dry pinto beans
1 teaspoon chili powder1
teaspoon dried oregano 5 slices of bacon, cut into small pieces
(I cooked my bacon first, but you don't have to)
2-3 cloves of minced garlic
2 cups water
2 cups of chicken stock
1 onion, chopped
fresh cracked pepper
Wash the beans and soak overnight in cold water. Drain the beans in a strainer and rinse with cool water. Dump into slow cooker. Stir in chili powder and oregano.
Add bacon and minced garlic to slow cooker with beans. Add about 2 cups of water and 2 cups of chicken stock, or until beans are covered. Add onion to slow cooker with beans and meat. Stir well.
Season, to taste, with garlic salt, season salt and pepper. Cover the pot, and cook on high until beans are very tender, about 5-6 hours.
Serve with cornbread.
