    1 pound (2 cups) dried black beans sorted and rinsed
    1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
    5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

    4 tablespoons chopped Jalapeno chilies
    4 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt.


You can substitute chopped green chilies for the Jalapenoes to make it less spicy. Also you can add 1.5 cups chopped bell peppers.


Mix all ingredients into a 3.5 to 6 qt slow cooker.

Cover and cook on high heat for 6-8 hours or until beans are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove Bay leaves.
