Wash the dry beans first, then soak them in water for several hours.  Replace the water every two hours.  Soaking will reduce cooking time.  After soaking, place in a fresh pot of water and bring to boil.  Simmer for 45 to 60 minutes or until soft.  Season them any way you want and serve as a side with your favorite meal.


Place the beans in a large bowl and cover with 3 inches of water.  Cover the pot and soak overnight at room temperature.  You can skip this step if using an Instant Pot or pressure cooker.  The next day, drain the beans and combine with your favorite stock, such as chicken or vegetable.  Add salt, garlic and other spices and simmer for 1-2 hours, until tender.  Drizzle with olive oil and add to stews, bean salads, and cassoulets.


Rinse the beans thoroughly and then cover with water and soak overnight. The next day, drain the beans and cover with 4 inches of water in a large pot.  Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender.  Season to add to your favorite Mexican dish
