Cowboy Beans

I often make pinto beans because my oldest daughter just loves Mexican food and these and a spin off of them.

1 bag of dry pinto beans (wash and pick out any rocks or discolored beans)
1 large diced green bell pepper
1 large diced onion
1/2 diced red bell pepper
4 bay leaves
3 tablespoons chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon cumin
4 cut up links of your favorite sausage (I'm using venison/pork garlic spicy flavor)
water to cover beans
1 tsp of red chili flakes or jap if you prefer
1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
handful of chopped cilantro

Wash pinto beans. Place pinto beans and all the ingredients into the crock pot except the sausage links and cilantro.

Turn crock pot on low and cook for 5 hours (often adding water if needed and seasoning).  Cut up the sausage into bite size or slices and place into beans.  Cook another 2 hours or until the beans are completely soft. Adjust seasoning if needed.  Serve with Mexican cornbread and over rice.

Great recipe. Affordable, comforting and nutritious. I featured your blog post on my "News of the Day" blog yesterday.
