If your family is like ours, summer is always a busy time and finding a meal you can prepare while you are out doing other things is helpful and relieves the stress of figuring out “what’s for supper”.
Below is an easy Crockpot meal that our family enjoys.
Crockpot Pinto Beans
1 – 2 lb Bag Food Club Dried Pinto Beans
1 – 16 oz Jar Food Club Thick & Chunky Salsa (Medium)
2 slices of Bacon (uncooked)
1 tsp. – Morton’s Natural Seasonings
1 tsp – Margarine
1/2 tsp – Salt
Rinse beans; place in large bowl and fill with warm water until beans are completely covered. Soak beans for approximately 6 hours and then pour in Crockpot. Fill Crockpot with water until beans are covered; add jar of salsa, bacon and other ingredients. Cook on high until beans are tender. Suggestion: Soak the beans overnight and put them on to cook in the morning and you will have supper ready to eat when you get home from work!
The Food Club Thick & Chunky Salsa has bell peppers, onions, and spices that give the beans a great flavor. Make a pan of cornbread to go with the beans and you have a meal. If you have any leftover beans just add ground meat or sausage the next day and then you have chili for another meal.
Set aside time this week for your family and enjoy a meal together. Count your blessings daily and give thanks for the time you share with your family.
