IMO, anyone who bothers to soak their beans first is just wasting time! All I need is a few hours to cook them, on the weekend or after supper for the next day. There is one thing that is not mentioned, you need salt but not till After they have softened or they will not get soft. I use chicken bouillon. I season these beans with almost anything in the spice rack,bay leaves, smoked paprika, garlic, cumin,pepper,oregano. My hubby loves beans and would eat them every day. If you want to make Cowboy beans out of this, use a can of pickled jalapenos,chorizo,ham,bacon,tomato, cilantro. These are Great for a party! Garnish with sliced radishes, cheese and sour cream. Thank you sheilamichael for sharing this wonderful dish.
