Slow Cooked Pinto Beans

Throw some pinto beans into a slow cooker, along with these seasonings and enjoy a nice pot of flavored beans at the end of the day.  Add some meat to the pot and make it an entree you can serve over rice.


1 pound dried pinto beans, rinsed and picked over 
4 cups hot water 
2 tablespoons Tortilla Soup Seasoning  Blend  (recipe in the soups eCookbook Here)
1 14.5-ounce  can diced tomatoes
1 pound cooked ground beef


  1. Lightly spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray or line with a slow cooker liner.
  2. Add beans, water and seasoning. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or until beans are tender.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes (along with cooked ground beef if desired); set slow cooker on high and cook uncovered 30 minutes or until heated through.

This dish is great served with the Sweet Cornbread Recipe found in my Breads eCookbook!
