Black Bean Soup Recipe

1 pound dried black beans
12 cups water, divided
1/4 pound bacon, fried crisp and crumbled or 1/2 pound smoked ham, chopped
2 medium-size onions, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

Place dried beans in large stockpot. Cover with 9 cups water. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Boil 10 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours, or until beans are tender. Discard cooking water. Combine cooked beans, 3 cups water, bacon, onions, garlic salt and pepper in 4 quart slow cooker, stirring well. Cover; cook on high 4 to 6 hours.

To serve beans as a side dish, add 1 (4 ounce) can of chopped green chilies, 1 teaspoon powdered cumin and 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano to 5 to 6 cups of fully cooked beans. Simmer for 25 minutes to blend flavors.
Makes 8 servings.
