Mexican Pot Beans

And not that kind of pot, you sickos! I don't know where I got this recipe, but I have used it for several years. I often make it just to put the beans in the refrigerator. My teenage son eats them cold when he's famished ten minutes after a meal. Enjoy!

Mexican Pot Beans

2 pounds pintos, soaked overnight
1/4 cup bacon drippings
1 small onion, chopped OR 1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried oregano
salt to taste (add later)

Combine everything except salt in crock pot. Add 3 cups water. Cook on high for 5-6 hours till done. Add salt to taste. Lower temp to low or warm until serving.

If you forget to soak the beans, you can still make this recipe. Just add more water at the beginning and leave it on high all day.
