Have you ever eaten pinto beans for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
I did once. Or a few times.
Pinto beans are absurdly easy to cook, throw them in a slow cooker with water. Wait ~8 hours, and its cooked.
Yep, its that easy.
(I’m intentionally making this a short article to prove how easy cooking pinto beans are)
- Put water in a slow cooker(~3 cups per 1 cup pinto beans)
- Add pinto beans to slow cooker(keep an eye out for small stones, I have found a few in my lifetime)
- Turn it on low, put a lid on, and wait ~8 hours
When its done, eat it.
These make low cost, high protein, and fast lunches for the whole week. 1 minute in the microwave and you are eating food.
