Slow Cooker Recipes: Black Bean Soup with Shredded Pork

If you love black bean soup, you’ll enjoy this slow cooker recipe!  How amazing are slow cookers!  I love throwing the ingredients in the cooker and then coming home 10 hours later with dinner prepared.  This recipe was especially appealing because, as you know, I love any recipe that gets some heat and smokiness from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.  Enjoy!

Black Bean Soup with Shredded Pork

  • 1  pound  dried black beans, rinsed and picked over
  • 2  bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1 1/4 lb.)
  • 2  slices bacon, chopped
  • 1  onion, finely chopped
  • 2  cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1  tablespoon  chopped canned chipotle chilies in adobo plus 1 Tbsp. adobo sauce
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  salt

Combine 6 cups water, beans, pork chops, bacon, onion, garlic, chilies, adobo, cumin and salt in slow cooker. Cook on low until beans are tender and pork chops are falling apart, 4 to 6 hours.

Remove and discard bacon. Cut pork away from bones. Discard bones and shred meat. Add meat back to slow cooker with beans. Season with additional salt and serve.

  • I cook the bacon in the microwave, take it out and then put the onions & garlic in the same dish & microwave them for 1 minute , then I add that to the beans, etc. Serve it with yellow rice!! so good
