Slow Cooker Ranch Style Beans

There are Ranch Style Beans and then there are Hidden Valley® Ranch Style Beans. This slow cooker recipe takes its time to develop the flavor harmony of bacon, onions, beans, chili powder and HVR Seasoning to make them just right on a cold winter’s day or parked next to your favorite picnic delicacy on a lazy summer afternoon.

Steps (3)

  1. 1

    Place the beans in the pot of a slow cooker. Add the bacon, tomato paste and onions.

  2. 2

    Pour 6 cups water over the top. Cover the pot and cook for 8 hours on low heat or 5–6 hours on high.

  3. 3

    Two hours before you are finished, stir in the ranch seasoning and chili powder. Serve hot.

    Note: For a vegetarian version, leave out the bacon.

    1. 1
      Place the beans in the inner pot of your multi-cooker. Add the bacon, tomato paste and onions. Pour 5 cups of water over the top.
    2. 2
      Turn on the multi-cooker and secure the lid, setting pressure valve to “sealing.” Select “manual” or “pressure cook” and cook on high-pressure for 30 minutes. Select “cancel” to turn off the machine.
    3. 3
      Allow the pressure valve to natural pressure release for at least 15 minutes, then quick-release the pressure by turning the seal to “venting.” Remove the lid, then stir in the ranch seasoning and chili powder.
    4. 4
      Check for doneness. Serve warm if finished. If necessary, pressure cook another 5 minutes by following the steps above.

    * Always follow manufacturer’s instructions.
