I made this last night and served it with homemade tortillas and mexican rice. I've never been successful cooking with dried beans before, but these were great. I substituted oregano for the cumin and used a chuck of ham for the meat. A definte keeper.

This is so very good of you to post this recipe. I am a dump cook most of the time and end up with to much juices. Not this time. I did add 4 cloves of minced garlic and used Ham juice from a boiled ham. We have a wonderful tasting beans. Thank You.

These were great! I put them in the crock pot and cooked them on low most of the day. I turned them up to high for the last couple of hours. They turned out perfect!
