This bread was baked in a crock pot by Stephanie at A Year of Slow Cooking. I was encouraged to try this as I don't want to bake in the oven and make my air conditioner work that much harder!

However, I found a more savory recipe than Stephanie's here.
It features green chilies and all in the batter. [there is even a version using broccoli!]
Hooray for slow cookers!!!!
This all started yesterday when I was reading the Pioneer Woman Cooks blog about cooking Spicy Beans. Her photos make the dish look fabulous!
My thoughts on her directions----I would never cook pinto beans without pre-boiling and discarding the first cooking water by draining them and then continuing to cook in fresh water; and no matter how tasty I wanted them to be, I don't add the salt ( or the salty ham, etc) until the beans are tender....otherwise they stay tough!

So that's dinner for tonight...or should I say "supper"??? Pinto beans and cornbread with fresh chopped onion on top and maybe to cool things off even more, some cottage cheese on the side!

Yum! Cornbread and beans...the best! I agree about salting the beans, but did not know about discarding the first water. Thanks!

You might enjoy the blog "Learning With Lea", also on blogspot. She does interesting recipes, too. I just learned from her to make yogurt in the crockpot, and also heard about The Pioneer Woman. I'm looking forward to looking at "A Year of Slow Cooking". Thanks for that lead.

Cheers! Sue

One of my very favorite meals! I grew up with this as a regular--the only thing I might change is add sliced tomator or pear halves to that cottage cheese--maybe even cantaloupe!

That sounds so good to me! I have been hungry for beans and I have buttermilk to make cornbread right now. I don't make this very often but with fresh ripe tomatoes...it sure sounds good! We're going out for lasagna tonight! ♥

And a glass of ice cold buttermilk to go with the cornbread and beans.
Brings back my Southern memories.
