I prefer Peruvian beans they cook faster. Rinse 3 cups of beans, place in crock pot.
Add 11 cups of water.
Thin slice some onions, about 3-5 slices, depends how much you love onions. Add to crock pot.
1 teaspoon of chopped garlic (I like the one in olive oil). 4 teaspoons of salt. Add both to crock pot and stir.
Cook low for 8hrs. I recommend doing it before work because as good as they can be, smell can get mighty strong.
And well... Enjoy! I'll add my recipe for refried beans soon. Well come back soon for my recipes :)
