Crock-Pot Carribean Black Beans

Submitted by: S_PRESS

Introduction

Yay. Beans again... well, sometimes I think that but not often. I mean, I really love beans and am absolutely fine with eating them often. It's just that I typically don't get excited about a new flavor or experiment when cooking black beans. I usually am satisfied and pleased with my traditional method. But, I recently found a recipe online and thought, hmmm, I can make that work and got excited once again about the fabulous black bean! Yay. Beans again... well, sometimes I think that but not often.
