Slow cooked pinto beans with dried chiles

Lynn Socko


These have a deliciously, slight chili taste and the cumin just tops it off. If using mild New Mexico or Guajillo peppers your beans will not be spicy, just totally delicious.

How to Make Slow cooked pinto beans with dried chiles


  1. I don't soak my beans since they are cooking over night. Place in a crock pot and add enough water to come about 3" above beans.
  2. Remove the seeds and stems from three dried peppers, I use New Mexico mild or Guajillo. Crush in food processor, add to crock pot.
  3. Smash garlic cloves and add to crock pot. Add cumin and salt. Set on low, cover and go to bed. You will smell these delicious things slow cooking all night, so sweet dreams!
