I like beans and make a lot of items using dry beans to start with, and I have a lot of time on my hands so I go with slow cooked beans in my slow cooker as the standard. This recipe can be tailored at will with what you have on hand or what you want to use. This recipe is what I make but it also changes each time.

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Sort the beans and remove any bad ones or debris, soak overnight.
  2. Next day, drain and rinse the beans, add to your slow cooker. Add cut up sausage, ham, or bacon, add water to the slow cooker about 1 inch above the contents.
  3. Cook on Low setting for 8-10 hours (I routinely start my beans about noon, cook until about 7 or 8 pm, leave in the pot and just start cooking the next day).
  4. Season with some salt, black pepper, oregano, and cumin to your liking. Keeping mind, slow cookers will reduce the seasoning level the longer you cook.
Recipe Notes

Low cost, and it makes a lot of beans.

Variants: Use any of the following, chopped onion, tomato paste, chopped chilies, ham, bacon, or even chicken, use chicken stock instead of water, you get the idea, tailor this at will.

Common recipe I have been making for years, and never the same.
