Recipe by Happy Hippie

This tasty combination is great for tostadas and burritos. I got this little ditty from my favorite resource "Low Fat Mexican Recipes"

I had a tough time with this recipe. I soaked my beans overnight but it took 3 days of cooking in the crock pot to be done. Must be the high altitude or old beans. Flavor was good.
