Combine all ingredients in a 4-quart saucepan. Over medium heat, bring beans to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook beans for 20 minutes or until a thick, soupy consistency is reached. Serve.
This recipe also works well on a grill, letting the great outdoors permeate and enhance the flavor of the beans as they cook.
