Frijoles Negros- Crock Pot Mexican Black Beans

Recipe by soleta
READY IN: 20hrs




  • Soak the beans for at least 8 hours. If they are old, 24 hours is great. You must change the water at least 3 times to rinse the white foam that appears in the surface.
  • Pour the beans in the crock pot with the water, the bay leaves, the onion and garlic. (Cut in half the garlic cloves to take out the stem that germinates so it is nicer for your tummy, you can plant the stem or just through it away).
  • Cook on high for 12-15 hours. Check the amount of water around the 8th hour and fill again if necessary.
  • Turn of the crock pot and add the salt, stir softly and let it rest for at least 30 minute.
  • *You can use more beans, depending of the capacity of your crock pot. It will be a nice soup that you can enjoy hot or cold. Separate the beans for using them in other recipes like fried and mashed beans.
