Pinto beans in the crockpot

I found this recipe on a Weight Watcher site, I think. It has great flavor and is so easy to make. I made these to go with fajitas and rice on Wed night. We added an extra garlic clove and always need to add more salt.

Pinto beans in the crockpot

1 lb bag pintos washed and picked through
1 onion cut up
1 clove garlic crushed and chopped
1 tsp salt or more if needed
black pepper to taste.
7-8 cups water or more if needed

put in crock pot..

I put mine on high for 6-8 hours.. or you can put on low for 10-12 hours or overnight... Now you don't have to presoak.. it cooks down and makes good juice. If your crock pot cooks too hot, you may have to add more water. We use a hand blender to blend into refried beans.
