You can cook dry beans in a crock pot! Makes life a million times easier... Still soak your beans overnight if you can though..
Try dried organic black beans, vegetable stock (instead of water - makes a world of difference), cumin, salt (becareful of how much salt your stock has), pepper, garlic, onions, tomato paste and a whole dried chipotle pepper on low. Start it at around 8am and by dinner, you'll be so happy. Great as a side dish or in tacos, burritos, on a salad, etc. Add a little sour cream and avocado... You can do just about anything Southwestern-y with these beans. Then try experimenting with other beans and spices for other meals. I am currently in LOVE with cannelini beans (white kidney beans they call them.) They are great with pasta... YUMMO!
