Boredom Beans

What do I do when I’m really bored, make a pot of beans of course. I’ve read 3 books in the past 5 days and I needed a break. I put a couple cups of Pinto beans in water to soak, and were they thirsty, I went outside to get some vitamin D came back an hour later and had to add more water.

I actually have fresh onions meaning no sprouts, and garlic. It was harder to peel the garlic with my shaking hands than chop the garlic and onion. I am not real patient, I rinsed the beans and threw onions and garlic plus fresh water a dash or two of sea salt into a crock pot. Then back to the couch and started another book.

I sort of forgot about the beans until I was in bed, damn. I went to the kitchen and turned the crock pot off, they had been cooking for eight hours. They were perfect, probably the best batch I’ve ever made. I left them alone, no stirring therefore no smashed beans.


I’m looking forward to lunch to have a bean and cheese burrito with salsa. I’ll let you know how delicious it was. Catch ya later

  1. I always soak beans overnight in cold water, drain, add fresh water and then cook them. Would not have thought to cook them in a crockpot, but will give it a try soon. I love pinto beans, I grew up eating pinto beans. The only bean to put in chili with beans, not kidney beans like so many recipes I’ve seen. Eww. LOL

    1. My friend from Mexico told how to make them, after many failed attempts. Must soak, easy on the salt..


      1. Not really, but I’ll write down how I do it and send it to you in a link later today. It’s easy to make in a slow cooker, too, which is how I often do it.

  2. Hubby tried beans in the Insta pot and they were really good, but I’m old fashioned and prefer the soak method. Same result though–delish!! Guess it’s all that matters lol
