1 pound 16 bean mixture
2 quarts water
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon salt
16 ounce can tomatoes, undrained and chopped
10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 pound ham hocks, or smoked meat

Cooking Instructions (stovetop)

Sort and wash beans and place in pot. Cover with water 2 inches
above the beans and soak overnight. Drain beans; add 2 quarts
water and the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cover and bring to
a boil, reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until beans are
tender. Add ham hocks and salt and tomatoes. Simmer 30 minutes.

Crockpot Instructions:

I have done this two ways. I have put everything into the crockpot
and cooked it on High all day and the beans cooked and were not
hard. I have also just put the beans, water, onion and garlic and
cooked that for about 4 hours on low then added the salt, ham,
tomatoes and cooked that another few hours.

In the package of beans there is a nasty "ham flavoring" packet that I just throw out. I use the smoked ham hocks or anything that is cheap and then I throw that meat out because it is usually tasteless by then. I just use it for the flavor.
