Slow Cooker Black Beans

I found this recipe while reading Southern Living. The girls made these and Jenna said it is her new favorite recipe for black beans.

Slow Cooker Black Beans
Southern Living magazine Feb. 2018

1 pound dried black beans
1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
1 yellow onion, chopped 
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 thick-cut bacon slices, chopped (optional)
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeño chile, halved lengthwise
6 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano we used dried and increased to 1 t


Rinse and sort black beans. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add onion, bell pepper, and, if desired, bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic, and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Transfer onion mixture to a 6-quart slow cooker; add beans, jalapeño chile, chicken broth, salt, brown sugar, cumin, pepper, and chopped oregano. Cover and cook on LOW until beans are tender, about 6 hours.
