beans, beans, the magical fruit...

So N and I are huge fans of beans. HUGE. Last week, we tried a new recipe. The results were so good that we ate them every single day for lunch and dinner. Bean tacos, beans with butternut squash, beans with cheese, bean soup... we did it ALL. I just have to share the recipe.

Vegetarian Beans
adapted from All Recipes

1 onion, peeled and halved
3 c dry pinto beans (or 1.5 c black beans, 1.5 c pinto), rinsed
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
3 teaspoons minced garlic
4.5 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
9 cups water

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot.
Cook on high for at least six hours, possibly eight. 

After cooking, you can either strain the liquid and mash the beans for refried beans, or keep the whole beans in the liquid for use in soups, tacos, etc.
