I have a ton of dried beans. Black eyed peas, black beans, red beans, lentils, etc. They are really the only thing everyone in my family can eat and they are truly a money saver. I am just tired of having beans and rice with turkey sausage and chili over and over again. Anyone have good recipes that they have used?

Since I am vegan I have lots of things to do with beans. Last week I took a tortilla shell and layered re-fried beans, rice, black beans, avocado, tomato, salsa, put another tortilla shell on top and covered my husbands in enchilada sauce and cheese and on mine I just put a shell on it. I baked it at 350-400 for about 20 minutes.

I put beans in my salads, white chili (with chicken), smash 'em up and make refried beans (or not refry them) for burritos, 7-layer bean dip etc., And Killer Casserole:
any beans
cheese, corn, olives, peppers, cooked hamburger/ chicken etc., etc
Crushed up Doritos or any tortilla chips
Make a gravy:

Cream of Chicken soup (no diluted)
Cheddar Cheese soup (no diluted)
Picante sauce
Add spices: garlic, cumin, cayenne salt pepper etc.

Mix together top with cheese and bake 30 mins

Sorry, no measurements. I just toss the stuff in.

go to, enter in your ingredients and see what they suggest!

You could get some good ideas that way. :)

That's my method of cooking also.

Crockpot Black Eyed Pea Soup 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

My dad use to make a simple soup but it was delicious.

1lb. pinto beans
A large hamhock (for flavor, I don't eat it)
Large onion
I can diced tomatoes w/juice
5 large cloves garlic
Half a bunch fresh parsley, chopped.
1/2 cup molasses or honey
3 c. beef broth

Put it all in large soup pot, and add enough water to go 3/4 of the way up. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to low. Cook until beans are tender, like 3 hours.

You can then put some soup in another pot and add pasta. cook until tender. Then cover with Parmesan cheese. Yum. Garlic bread is great with it too.

Thank you everyone! I will probably try 1 or 2 new ones a week. 

momof6monkeys --- 6 years ago - also allows you to put in things you have on hand and suggests recipes. Its a neat little site with lots of options. Good luck!

Minestrone soup is a good way to use beans (some recipes are meatless.)
