You can't go anywhere in Costa Rica without eating gallo pinto. Even Burger King sells it for breakfast!

Just a plain, cheap way to cook pinto beans. You can also use dry black beans or dry kidney beans, if you like.

Quick preparation allows me to throw this in the slow cooker before work and have dinner ready when I get home. Just add a salad.

This is not low calorie but is very yummy. It is high in protein and low carb but still a treat to eat.

Best Vegan Mexican Pinto Beans Ever  ( Slow Cooker)
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

A flavor powerhouse of protien!! Cooked with no meat or meat by products. Easy to prepare by putting it all in a crock pot.

Serve with whole wheat tortillas and a home made Pico De Gallo and it is a surefire hit for the whole family.

Also the left overs are really good to mash up the next day with some lime juice and serve with tortilla chips!

Beans are a great source of protien and dietary fiber but most avoid them because they can also be a source of gas. Preparing them this way will guarantee less gas later. It does take quite a bit of time, but it makes about 12 cups so you can throw some in the freezer for later.
