Yield: 1 Servings
|1 pounds||Pinto beans, washed (no need to soak)|
|6 cups||Water (I use bottled spring) (up to 8)|
|3 larges||Cloves of garlic, peeled and split into several slivers (up to 4)|
|6||Inch strip of kombu (sea vegetable)|
Place washed beans in crockpot with 6 cups of water, garlic and kombu. Cook on high for 6-8 hours, adding extra water (if the beans look too dry) and stirring from time to time. Mash with potato masher after about 8 hours and season to taste with salt or Fiesta brand "pinto bean seasoning".
The garlic and kombu cook down completely and along with the seasoning make this a very flavorful dish.
