These pork taco red beans can make several meals! From a bowl of the luscious beans to mounds of nachos, you want to make this EASY slow cooker recipe!


  • 1 lb. small red beans, washed and rinsed
  • 2 Tbl. nutritional yeast
  • 1 (1 oz.) packet organic taco seasoning mixture
  • 1 lb. pork chop(s), boneless, small dice
  • 1 can (14.5) oz. chopped tomatoes + 1 cup water, rinse can

Put all ingredients in the multicooker. Blend together. Set to [slow cooker] setting to [High] for 6 hours.

Beans can stay in the multicooker on [Warm] until ready to serve.


1. Any type of dried bean works in this recipe. My favorites are pinto, anasazi, cannellini, Great Northern.

2. You can substitute ground pork for pork chops. Bone in pork chops will work also. Just remove the bone after cooking the beans then shred the tender chop meat.

3. Substitution for cream of onion soup is: 1 can coconut milk, 8 oz. chopped mushrooms, one cup diced onions. Sautee mushrooms and onions in 2 TBL olive oil. Add coconut milk. Put into mixture with beans.

4. Substitution for water: beef bone broth Kettle & Fire. Use code ALLYSKITCHEN at checkout for 20% discount on your order.

5. Create your bean taco 'bar' with toppings including: chopped walnuts, chia seeds, shredded lettuce, salsa, guacamole, lime wedges, shredded cheese, sliced green onions, plain Greek yogurt, sour cream, corn chips, soft tacos and more! Everyone builds their bowl to their liking!

6. If you prefer more broth in your beans, then simply add some liquid: bone broth (beef or chicken), sometimes I use V8 juice, vegetable broth, water.

  1. I’m a bit confused and would appreciate clarification on the total amount of water for this recipe. Is it really only 2 cups of water or broth to cook 1 pound of beans?? When I cook dried pinto beans it has always required much more than that but this recipe looks amazing and I would love to try it. I do have an instant pot but have never used as a slow cooker but assume it would work fine for this recipe, am I correct? Thanks!

    1. Hi Valerie! So sorry for confusion. Yes, in the slow cooker on high ( with very snug lid), you don’t require as much liquid. The beans are less brothy. Bu, you can add more liquid if you want more broth. I’ll jump back and make some notes for others to follow. It’s so great to have “editors” like you helping. Thank you so very much. Let me know if other questions! xoxo ally
