Different beans take different cooking methods

But for pinto beans never soak them


made some today
boiled for fifteen minutes on stove then to the crock pot set on high
the skins were an issue but the beans themselves were quite soft.

If you like beans, or anything with beans in it, invest in a pressure cooker. It will really save you a lot of time and hassle.


Thank you! Go buy a $25 pressure cooker and stop being a cheap frugal bastard, wasting your life cooking beans for hours on end over 25 bucks. Any bean on the planet takes 30 min or less this way.

Another tip..
Simmer your beans, dont boil them. Boiling them will cause them to explode.

Always cover them with twice the water of the volume they take up. They will soak up the water while soaking and you'll end up with a dry pot if you don't. I always like to add a head of garlic and a jalepeno or two, or cerrano for taste. Nothing like a good pot of beans.

Fresh beans make a big difference too,old store bought beans can be years old.
