basic crockpot beans

1 servings
Onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 pounds Dried beans, soaked 4 hours
  Or over night
2 bay leaves
  Water to cover.

Put in crockpot and cook about 4-6 hours on high or overnight on low.

Beans should be soft (small white beans take longest, pinto beans shorter)

Add spices, veggies, etc. (see below) cook about another hour.

Spices:, veggies, etc:

1) 1 tsp dried cumin, 1 tsp paprika, ¼ tsp cayenne pepper, 1-2 Tbsp. soy sauce, a few chili peppers, chopped, chopped green pepper, can chopped tomotoes, some frozen corn. (Good with black beans) ½ tsp liquid smoke tastes good added.

2) 1 tsp cumin, 1 can chopped green chilis, chopped green pepper, 1 Tbsp soy sauce (good with white beans).

3) 1-2 Tbsp soy sauce, ¼ cup molasses, ¼ tsp cayenne, ½ tsp dried mustard, (good with pinto or black eyed peas) Garbanzo beans I usually use as a substiute in chicken recipes, so I'll freeze them with just the onions and garlic. Frozen black eyed peas are also a good staple to have on hand (for some reason that's the only legume that comes frozen except for lima beans which I don't like).
