~Soak beans in water overnight for several hours. Pour off water & place in a large dutch oven w/ fresh water. Bring beans to boil until foam appears on top. (approx 15-20 min). Pour off water & add fresh water.
~Add coarsley chopped onions, garlic cloves (finely chopped) & rotel to beans.
~After bringing to a boil again cook on low to med heat approx 3 hours. Check frequently to be sure there is enough water. If not add as needed.

*We add shredded cheese to this & it was great! We also had alot so we froze some of it.
