I needed a double batch for a huge group, but only had a pound of dry black and dry pinto, so used both. I didn't double the bacon since I had homemade chicken broth in place of water. I used a 28oz can of Rotel, and tablespoon and half of the spices, and used fresh garlic cloves, and the flavor was wonderful. I cooked in the crock pot on high for 7 hours warm the last hour. It was a bit soupy still at the five hour mark and I was nervous, but they thickened up to a perfect consistency the last two hours. Everybody at our dinner party loved them, and when I fixed up leftover plates for everyone to take home, they all said to put some of those good beans on it.
