“Somewhere between chili and borracho beans. Delicious, easy to prepare, nutritious, great for week lunches. Cooking beans in a crock pot turns out perfectly cooked, creamy beans every time. Servings are just a guess-sorry! It filled a medium size crock pot (curry cooker in the Middle East). Add more chipotles in adobo if you like spicier food.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Combine beans, onions, garlic, bouillon, and water in crock pot. Cook on LOW for 6 hours (or more—I cooked the beans overnight).
  2. 2. Add remaining ingredients except rice, continue to cook on low for 1-2 hours. Add more water if needed, you want it to be pretty soupy since the rice will absorb a lot of liquid.
  3. 3. Just before serving, add brown rice and stir to combine.
  4. 4. Garnish with chopped cilantro, a sprinkle of sharp cheddar, diced green onions.
