  • 30 ounces black beans - 2 cans 15 ounces each NOT drained
  • ½ cup white onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeños, one minced and one diced - wear gloves and set the one diced jalapeño for serving
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon oregano, dried
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • Place everything in the slow cooker EXCEPT the one diced jalapeno.
  • If you accidentally drain the cans of beans add some water back to the pot.   You may also add a bit more water if you'd like a little more 'sauce'.
  • Stir well and cook on low 6-8 hours.
