This recipe came together by pure panic, no time and sheer luck. It’s been rather busy here, well honestly when is it not busy? More than normal though I didn’t have time to cook what I wanted the other day with my beans.
I had soaked the beans over night and set them aside to get them cooking only to forget! About mid day I happened to remember and didn’t have the time to flip through any books so they were tossed into the slow cooker with a pint of homemade Salsa.
Easiest side dish ever, and I had no left overs either. Depending on the spice of the salsa you pick to use you control the taste of it. I love when a dish is tossed together and it comes out to be a winner!
4 cups white beans, that have been soaked overnight and rinsed
1 pint jar of salsa (you can use store bought)
Half a cup of broth any kind will do
Place rinsed beans in slow cooker, pour broth in and empty salsa in. mix. Cover and cook on medium heat for about 4 hours. Test to see if beans are tender, add pepper to taste and stir covering to cook another half hour to hour depending on if beans are cooked.
I used a hot salsa which was made a couple weeks back, so pick your salsa carefully. My kids called this “Party Beans” and I have to agree, they were pretty awesome for something so simple!
