“I used to spend all day cooking a pot of beans and watching them carefully so they didn't burn. The crock pot solves that problem. Serve a big bowl of these with big piece of cornbread...That's good eating.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover beans with water and soak overnight; drain.
  2. Place beans in a 6 quart crock pot with water and remaining ingredients except salt. Cook on low setting for 8-10 hours, or until beans are soft and done. Stir a couple of times during cooking, if possible. Add salt after beans are done. Cooking salt in the beans will make them tough.
  3. Note: The jalapenos will give your beans a bit of heat. You can control how hot you want them by the amount of pepper you add. If you want no heat, replace the jalapeno with 2 tablespoons of chopped green bell pepper.
