Expert Tips

Instead of black beans, try pinto, navy or red beans to give this recipe different color and texture.

Rinse canned beans thoroughly to remove the starchy liquid and excess salt, then drain completely.

The dried beans in this recipe are precooked to make sure they'll be tender after cooking in the slow cooker.
