As I learn more about what I can and cannot eat, I keep looking for new ways to add variety to my diet, but often I find I am just adding a bunch of work. This recipe is super easy and a delicious way to get some protein without having meat.
- 1 package (16 oz) dried pinto beans
- 6 cups water
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 1/2 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
Rinse the beans thoroughly several times. Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook for 8 hours or overnight on the high setting, stirring occasionally. When done, mash with a potato ricer or stick mixer. I have this on a corn tortilla, or just topped with guacamole. Yum!
