I'm not a girl who buys everything organic, but if I can do things healthy I will.
I'm kind of a foodie.
I love to experiment.
But I am also cheap.
I've found that the cheap really wins out most of the time. =)
I love mexican, and I really like black beans. Search my blog and quite a few recipes come up.
So lately, I've been making black beans by the bagful and then freezing the leftovers. I find that they work really well that way. So I thought I'd share.
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chipotle powder
Put the 1 bag of beans in the crockpot.
Cover with water.
Add spices and garlic and onion.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until done.
Use what you want and then freeze the rest in 1-2 cup packages.
Then you have them on hand, you aren't buying them in cans (which I hear isn't the greatest thing for you.)
Plus, it's cheap. And that always wins out!
