1 pound dried black beans (or turtle beans)
1 jar salsa (your favorite kind) — (16 ounce)

Rinse beans, removing any foreign objects. Place in a large bowl and cover with water and allow to soak at room temperature overnight.

Drain beans and place in a slow cooker with the salsa and stir. Add enough water just to cover the beans. Cover and cook on low all day, 8 – 10 hours.

Yield: 10 – 12 side dish servings or 6 – 8 main dish servings.

These freeze well.
