Ideas and resources for cooking pinto beans in the crockpot.
I usually use an old ham bone and some ham, the best is cheap. Smoked hamhocks cooked with the beans are the BEST! Great, now I want some!
This is a great recipe for any time. Great in the summer for around the campfire and also good and hearty in the colder weather months.
Brown hamburger and onion; drain grease. Put in crockpot and add remaining ingredients.
Cook on low for 6 hours.

If I cook some pinto beans with bacon in my crockpot, can I soak them overnight, then put them on low for a day to cook?

I use my crock pot all the time with dried beans. Yes, soak the bean overnight in enough water to cover the beans plus about three inches of water.
Next morning drain off the soaking water, and then rinse the beans in cold water. Put the beans back into the crock pot with enough water to cover them plus about an inch and a half, cover and cook-add the bacon about two hours before serving the beans.
