Twist Eats: Crock Pot Black Beans

Starting the Arbonne 10 day cleanse today and batch cooking for the week! We are super excited for the Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chili recipe. But, it calls for 2 cups of cooked black beans - NOT CANNED! Yikes, no time for traditional bean soaking and cooking today. We found this great option for crock pot cooking and loved it! "Dry black beans complement rice dishes, as well as Mexican and Latin American cuisine. The small black, glossy dried beans typically require a long soaking time prior to cooking to help rehydrate them so they become tender and palatable. Preparing them in a Crock-Pot, or slow cooker, requires minimal effort and no long soaking. There's still some preparation prior to placing the beans in the Crock-Pot, but you can do it immediately before you begin slow cooking them."
