My husband is completely happy with dried beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. He likes dried butterbeans, northern beans, and pinto beans. My favorite is pinto beans. I used to cook them on my stove for a long time and worry about having to add water as they cooked. I found this recipe years ago and what a game-changer! No more having to watch the beans cook on the stove. I'm sure that you will think these won't taste right with the oregano and chili powder but you will have to just trust me. Once you get all ingredients in the crockpot you can just forget them for 5 hours. SO EASY!! Watch the video on my Facebook and you will see just how easy.
