  1. Put all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low 12-16 hours or on high 6-8 hours or until the beans are cooked.
  2. Pull out the roast and remove the meat from the bones. Discard the bones and any fat.
  3. Serve the meat and beans over hot cooked rice. Or, shred the meat, return it to the crockpot with the beans and serve in tortillas. This freezes well.

With so many options for quick and easy meals, there's no reason to spend time and money eating out.
