2 lb beans – I used a mixture of pinto and northern beans, dried
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt 'n' peppa
1 Cover dried beans with water, 2 inches higher than beans, in a bowl. Let soak for up to 6 hours.
2 Discard water and place beans into crock pot and again cover the beans with water, 2 inches higher than the beans. Set on low for up to 8 hours.
3 Add minced garlic into the crock pot with the beans and cook on low for another 30 minutes or so.
4 Turn crock pot off and transfer beans to a separate bowl. Mash with fork or potato masher.
5 Season with salt and pepper as needed.
