Thanks! This is a great use for my ricecooker! The beans came out great... I put in a package of taco seasoning to boost the flavor. Yum!
Thanks for an easy recipe to cook beans. Cooked mine for 2 1/2 hours with another cup of water. Added cumin and chili powder with the tomatoes. Made refried beans. Made for ZWT7~Emerald City Shakers
This did work.. But mine took 2 1/2 hours and additional water after the 1 1/2 of cooking needed to be added. For me, that wasn't a big deal. My rice cooker has a cook and a warm setting. Next time, I'll make sure it doesn't switch over to the warm setting, while the beans are cooking the first hour. I have a feeling I'll be making my beans in the rice cooker for now on. I did add the optional ingredients after the beans were done. Along with leftover sliced brats, roasted jalapenos, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and served over white rice. (Nice filling lunch, for all the teens that ended up at my house.) Thanks. :)
I'm sorry, but no bueno. I started them in my rice cooker four hours ago and they are not even close to being done. I will stick to the old fashioned way of making beans.
