Number of Servings: 8


    16 oz. dry black beans
    1 Green Pepper, chopped
    1 Onion, chopped
    salt, at least 1 tsp, more if needed
    pepper, 1 Tsp.
    2 Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (can still be frozen)


Makes at least 8 servings.

Night before soak the beans in a pan with water at least 2 inches above the beans. In morning rinse and drain beans. Add to the crockpot and put enough water to cover the beans. Add pepper, onion, salt and pepper and Chicken. Cook on high all day at least 8-10 hours. May need to add more water throughout the day. Serve with rice, lettuce and tomatoes. If you want a thicker consistency, mash the beans. The chicken will be so tender it will fall apart. If there is any leftovers put in refrigerator and use as a filler for taco salad or enchildas, etc.

    This was VERY easy to make. My first experience with dried beans. I used chicken broth instead of water and added some extra spices (lime, basil & thyme combo). It was delicious. My DH and daughter loved it, too. - 1/13/09

  • This might be a good recipe but these are NOT brazilian beans, I'm brazilian and we would never mix peppers and chicken with beans, the recipe for black beans is called Feijoada e it takes pieces of pork and sausage, a special sausage that we don't have abroad... - 9/8/12

  • Pretty good but a little bland. I added garlic and some black and red crushed pepper. Was very easy to make and very filling. I served mine on a bed of spinach with salsa and a dollop of organic greek plain yogurt (tastes alot like sour cream) - 3/12/11

  • THANK GOODNESS for a recipe that does NOT called for canned cream soups! This was DELICOUS! I added a little lime, lots of garlic and had hot salsa on the side for my husband who has an asbestos mouth. Loved it and will cook it again! - 1/11/11

  • I made this today and tasted it toward the end of cooking. It was a little bland, as others mentioned, but a little chipotle pepper spiced it up nicely! Thank for this recipe! - 8/12/09

  • I tried it today, easy to make, I used large chunks of onion and pepper, I wish I would have thought to add spicey peppers, (as above) it was alittle bland but filling. I'd make again...with zing! Also, 1 serving is prob about 3/4c. also, water just a bean level to start is also enough - 1/8/09

  • This is really easy to make. I have little experience in the kitchen, and this was an easy first recipe. I made it a little spicier by adding some red and black pepper, because intially it was a little bland for my taste. Overall, this is something I will make again! - 11/27/08
