Oh, my gosh, was this good. I plan to make this many times in the future. I've never cooked dry beans, but I figured this seemed pretty easy to start with. I ended up soaking the beans for 24 hours (I wasn't in any hurry) and then cooked them overnight because I didn't want to leave the crockpot on when I was away at work. When I got home that evening, I turned the crockpot on to heat while I fixed some rice and Mexican Grilled Chicken from the site. I used 26 oz of beef stock instead of the beer , added 2 tsp (2 cubes) of bouillion, and a can of tomatoes with green chilies instead of the fresh tomatoes and canned jalapenos. It was so delicious (and I'm not a bean person, take it from me :D ). I woke up in the middle of the night and I could smell the wonderfulness coming from the kitchen. It was perfectly salted and, because I soaked the beans for so long and then cooked it for about 9 hours on low, the beans were thick and melted like butter. You have to try this.
