I've frozen beans before, when I've made a giant batch and had left overs.

I have even used these frozen beans in other meals (soups, chilis) because they were hanging around.

Reading a blog today about saving money, where it's mentioned you should cook beans *TO* freeze, I had a DUH moment.

DUH - I can easily cook a batch TO FREEZE, then have beans on hand. All the time. Without having to buy canned beans ever again.

Jesus, Jorge and Juan - how did this not occur to me before? I've always dealt with leftovers, never taking it this obvious step forward.

I feed a large man, two kids who apparently have hollow legs, and myself (who I must admit is not a shabby eater). I use beans to fill out things all.the.time. Burritos, chili, soup, taco meat, etc. I easily use enough, especially during the winter months, to justify making batches upon batches that go directly to the freezer.
