Mexican Bean Soup

Place pinto beans in a slow cooker (crock-pot); cover with water. Mix in chopped garlic and salt. Cover and cook on high setting for about one hour. Fry bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned but still tender. Drain half the bacon fat. Place onion in the skillet; cook until tender. Mix in tomatoes and jalapenos; cook until heated through. Transfer cooked bacon, onions, tomatoes and jalapenos to the slow cooker or crock-pot with beans; stir. Cover and continue to cook on low setting for about four hours. Mix in beer and chopped cilantro about thirty minutes before serving.


Note: Frijoles Charros translates to "cowboy beans," named after the traditional Mexican horseman known as charros.
