Recipe by Grace4Gayle
READY IN: 3hrs 50mins




  • Process the onion in a food processor until it's very finely chopped. (My family doesn't like onion chunks).
  • Add the spices, egg, garlic and lemon juice. Process until mixed.
  • Drain the beans and add to the food processor. Process with just a few pulses leaving some beans in chunks.
  • Transfer bean mixture to a bowl and add bread crumbs. It will be wet and sticky so you can form it into balls.
  • Pour the 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of your crock pot.
  • Form bean mixture into golf ball size balls and flatten slightly.
  • Dip each side into the olive oil and nestle into the bottom of your crock pot. It's ok if they overlap or lay on top of each other.
  • Cook on high for 3 1/2 hours or until golden brown.
  • Layer into a pita or corn tortilla with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and tangy ranch dressing.
