Slow Cooker Black Beans

This is one of those foods that has as many methods as there are cooks.  This just happens to be mine.  Jorge always said he didn’t like them, and I decided that he had experienced some bland version, so I worked and reworked my version until I arrived at this.  He loved it! So there you are; no more revisions in the black beans category.  : )
