Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook beans until nearly tender, approximately 2-3 hours. Check water level occasionally, adding more hot water as needed to maintain approx 1 inch of water over the beans.
Add the salsa, vinegar, and beef base, stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low, cook for about 30 minutes to let flavors combine.
Enjoy with corn bread and a salad.

    It's both tasty and really easy to make. It takes maybe 5 minutes of prep work if you throw it in the crock pot. - 7/17/12
