Adapted from and courtesy of 'Recipes from the Root Cellar'. Pinto, red or black beans can replace the kidney beans if you prefer. *Very* easy!

I cut the recipe in half and used regular paprika. Nice blend of spicy and sweet. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I soaked the beans the day before in a crock pot. Later in the day I drained the soaking water and replaced with fresh water then cooked the beans overnight on LOW in the crock pot. The next day I drained the beans (saving some of the liquid) and proceeded with the recipe.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  3. Dump everything in a lightly oiled casserole dish, cover and bake in a low oven for about 2-3 hours, stirring about once an hour.
  4. If the beans look like they may be drying out, you can stir in a small amount of leftover bean liquid or some broth.
