Here’s an easy way to cook your black beans. They are perfect eaten all alone and absolutely wonderful in nachos.
- 8 oz dried Black Beans, that’s about half a bag. Stones picked out, rinsed and soaked in water overnight. Drain before putting in the crockpot.
- half a good-sized onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- half a jalapeno, minced
- 1 heaping TB Chicken Base
- 1 bottle of Beer, 12 ounces
- 2 cups water.
Place all the ingredients in your crockpot, stir well. Cook on high for 2 hours, then reduce the heat to low and cook the rest of the day. (At least a total of 7 hours). Season with salt and pepper if needed before serving. They are ready to eat when they are soft and fully cooked. Try using them in Nachos, burritos or all on their own. These beans are also great for re-fried beans.
