READY IN: 18hrs 30mins
Recipe by cookalot 2

This recipe is from scratch and made in the crock pot. It is a combination of recipes. If I have a lot of garden tomatoes I will chop 1-2 and add those as well.

I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this recipe for My 3 Chefs 2009. I got mixed reviews on this recipe. My 6 yr old newphew and 8 yr old niece didn't like them but my future hubby and I liked them. This was my first time ever cooking with a dry bean. I soaked my beans over night as I was told was best by several people. I used Splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar. I used hot sauce for the Tabasco sauce. I only used 1/2 tsp chili powder not to over power the taste. I only used 1/8 tsp dry cilantro. I cooked my beans on for 8 hours. These beans need constant stirring halfway through cooking as they really begin to stick. Overall I'd make them again. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)
