Slow Cooker Ranchero Beans

My recipe for Slow Cooker Ranchero Beans taste just like Chuy’s Tex-Mex ranchero beans! They’ll be your go-to side dish for every Mexican fiesta!

Slow Cooker Ranchero Beans

I’m back from vacation and feeling refreshed. However, I know I’ll be leaning on my slow cooker to get me through this week as I adjust back to cooking meals for the family, doing endless laundry, and of course just adjusting back to life. You guys know how much I love Mexican food. We just got back from a Carnival cruise and I got to enjoy Mexican food at the Blue Iguana Cantina ever day! Like, breakfast and lunch daily #EatalltheMexicanFood.

But let’s talk about when I’m home there is nothing more that I like to do than to make a huge Mexican feast. And beans are always on the menu. They are a must. I know it’s something my son will always eat and it’s something everyone always enjoys. I love Chuy’s Tex-Mex restaurant. They serve the most delicious ranchero beans. They are super spicy but oh-so full of flavor. Since I can’t eat there all the time I have resorted to making my own in my slow cooker. And let me just tell you that it tastes just like theirs (a little less spicy—but if you like it spicy make it spicier) and it makes a large batch. Once we are done with dinner I package the leftovers up into 1-2 quart size freezer bags, label it, and freeze it for a later dinner. Then once I know we are going to have another Mexican dinner I thaw the beans and reheat on the stovetop! Same great slow cooked taste but with minimal effort on my behalf.
