    Default Black beans from chipotle

    I was thinking of giving ds black beans for the first time today. Does anyone know if Chipotle uses any sauce or spice I should be concerned about or is it pretty much "safe"?
    I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

    My concern with pre-made black beans for a young one would be the salt content. Babies can't process a lot of sodium. You might be better off getting a can of low sodium beans and giving him that if you don't want to mess with making them yourself (which is surprisingly easy, if you want a good recipe let me know!).

    I'm with Paula. I've got a pot of black beans on the stove right now!

    And that's not too bad on the salt for Chipotle.

    Me either, we don't have Chipotle here. I assumed it would be like Taco Bell or something. The beans I make probably have more sodium than that in them.

    I hate to hijack, but I will (). I rinse then soak my beans overnight. You can either do them in the crockpot or stovetop, either way the recipe is basically the same. 1 bag of beans, a can of rotel, a can of diced green chiles, ~2 tbsp (total guess I just shake it in there) cumin, ~1 tbsp chili powder, some oregano, a diced onion, several whole cloves of garlic (more for crock pot, less for stove top), 1-2 stalks celery, sometimes I throw in some diced carrots and/or a package of frozen spinach. DH likes to put sliced sausage or diced ham but I like it meatless. You can use broth or water. If you use water you'll want to add a bit of salt. Then just simmer until the beans are done. I put it on low and leave it for 8ish hours in the crockpot. Let it simmer 2-3 hours on the stove- cover it and stir regularly.

    ETA: you can season it however you want, I made some big alterations when I was on the ED and used no garlic, no chili powder, just herbs and cumin and it was still good. I sort of like mine to taste like tacos though. We serve on brown rice with taco toppings.
