You will be amazed how tasty Canned Black Bean soup crock pot recipe is!

We used cans to save time but if you would rather use dry beans, learn how to cook black beans in the crockpot.

This is a great way to save even more money and dried black beans are super easy to cook. I like to make a big batch in the slow cooker and freeze it to use later in soups like this and more.

If you freeze it flat in bags, you can easily stack several in your freezer without taking up much room. We love black beans so it is nice having these in the freezer.

We like to cook beans overnight and then I can freeze it all in small servings the next morning once the beans are drained and rinsed. You can also use some of the beans to make refried black beans with an immersion blender for another meal idea. When ready to cook, put oil in a large pan and heat oil and add beans.

The slow cooker is the easiest way to cook dry beans but you can also use the stove top. Just bring to a boil and cook stirring occasionally after reduced heat.

You need a crockpot for this Crock Pot Black Bean Soup recipe. 

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.
