  • It usually takes 3 hours for me I suggest you get on the ball. He'll just have to wait alittle longer for his "frijoles"...lol

  • Look on the bag to see how long it takes but, I think you have enough time. Just do the quick soak (I think that's about and hour) and then they cook for about an hour to an hour and a half.

  • The quick soak is about 1.5-2 hours, then cooking another 1.5-2 hours, so he may have to wait a bit. I found that if I soak them overnight in the fridge, then rinse them and put them in the pot to cook in the morning, let them cool and refrigerate them, they taste much better. You can take them out of the fridge about an hour before you want to eat, and just simmer them. The flavors blend together better from the seasonings that way.

  • 3-5 hours, depending on how old they are
