If you have a crockpot you are golden! It's possible to cook beans easily without a crockpot but with one is the easiest way I have found. I make at least two pots a week and we always have beans available to eat in the fridge. So easy to make burritos, beans on toast, beans and rice or a quick pot of chili if they are ready to go. My all time favorite way to eat them is folded in a corn tortilla with some rice and cheese and fried until the tortilla is crispy.
Here's my easy, fast and cheap way to make a great pot of beans.
1. The night before measure out the amount of beans (any type) you want to cook. I cook three cups at a time. Sort the beans by picking out any stones or deformed beans. Most bags of beans today are very clean without stones but if you are picking up commodity beans it may be a different story.
