Place all ingredients into a slow cooker. Stir to combine. Cook on high for 8 hours, adding more water if needed.
Note: If more than one cup of water evaporates during cooking, then the temp is too high.

Once cooked, strain the bean mixture, reserving the liquid. Place mixture into a food processor* and process, adding the reserved liquid as needed to attain desired consistency.

*May use a potato masher
