    Sweet Diva's Note:

    From Taste of Home. I actually prepare these in my slow cooker. Just combine the ingredients (except for the red wine vinegar and 2 teaspoons olive oil) and let them cook all day on low. Add the vinegar and oil before serving. I double or triple the recipe and freeze them in 2 cup portions to use in recipes that call for a can of black beans. I also serve them sometimes with salsa, cheese and sour cream if I don't have the red pepper or jalepenos, as I always have salsa on hand. **PLEASE NOTE** Cooking time is based on original recipe instructions below and not on my slow cooker method.

      These are some of the best black beans I've tasted. Will definitely use these in any recipe that calls for black beans as well. These tasted great after letting them simmer in the slow cooker all day. Thanks for the great recipe.
