Step 1: The night before you plan on making this, place the beans in a large bowl full of water and leave to soak overnight. This makes the beans a bit easier to digest, if you know what I mean.
Step 2: In the morning, drain and rinse the beans, then place them in a crock pot along with the garlic and fill the crock pot with water to 1 inch from the top. Turn the crockpot on high and cook for about six hours or longer, until the beans are soft and tender. You may need to add water periodically.
Step 3: There will be a seasoning packet in your bean bag. Throw it away. It has artificial ingredients and food additives that are hard to say. You don't need that. Just add the salt and pepper and stir. Your beans are now ready to serve. Garnish with chopped tomatoes, cilantro and avocados. My kids love to crumble tortilla chips on top!
