I made this in the crockpot too. I combined this recipe with a Frijoles a la Charra recipe by adding some meat (two smoked ham hocks) and sauteeing the onions, garlic, peppers and tomatoes before adding. The bay leaves really add to the flavor. I wasn't sure about them, because I usually add them to navy bean soup (not mexican cuisine, but I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a try). I added a pinch of cinnamon, paprika and coriander too, they are spices you'd find in Sazon. I added too much water, I wasn't paying attention, but in the end it didn't matter at all. This is a very forgiving recipe and the beans were superb, better than restaurant quality. Thanks Kiki!!!
