  1. Rinse the beans in cold water and drain.
  2. In a medium pot combine all the ingredients. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 2 hours or until beans are soft.
  3. To get the beans to a creamy consistency, continue cooking for 30 to 45 more minutes or until the liquid gets creamy. Slide the pot cover around 1/4 inch to let steam out and stir occasionally.
  4. Serve with queso fresco as a soup, side dish or cold with green salads or quinoa.
