When it comes to feeding my family after a cold and busy day, a hearty meal in my slow cooker is my go to. For a family with 6 kids- many of them picky- delicious, customizable Black Bean Fiesta is the perfect choice.
Black Bean Fiesta is perfect for stretching your grocery budget with a meatless meal. I usually serve Black Bean Fiesta one night, and then serve the leftovers on taco night later in the week. The black beans taste great on tacos, with (or without) meat. Adding leftover Black Bean Fiesta to taco night is a great way to make your taco meat go a little farther too.
Here’s how to make Black Bean Fiesta:
Soak a 1 pound bag of black beans overnight. In the morning, rinse and drain the beans. Place the beans in your slow cooker with 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth, and 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
The final cooking time will vary depending on how firm or soft your family prefers black beans. We like our beans soft, so my total cooking time is usually 10 hours. Once the beans reach the desired texture add one cup of fresh chopped cilantro to the slow cooker.
- shredded cheese
- sour cream
- fresh chopped cilantro
Trust me, the avocado makes Black Bean Fiesta so delicious!We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
