Anytime I cook something like beans, which I can easily freeze for future meals, I tend to make a LOT. So this is a rather large amount but playing with the seasonings and ingredients it can be scaled down with a bit of trying. I use my cooked beans for soups, stew, chili, or even as a side whole or as refried beans. Tonight I served a bowl of beans, with a little broth, garnished with cheese and a little picante sauce with the corn bread on the side. For the cornbread I used a prepackaged mix doctored up. I was happy and have plenty of beans in the freezer for future use which saves time and money! I know my bean recipe is a little vague on the cooking time but I forgot to look at what time I started it. It does take a long time to cook that many beans though so be sure to leave yourself plenty of time. Also I never salt beans until they are done so be sure not to add salt at the beginning..
