Chili with Avocado, Garlic and Tomato Relish

1 tsp black pepper, ground

1 jalapeño, sliced (optional)

Next day, pour off soaking water and place beans into crock pot. Cover again with enough water for 2 inches to show above top of beans. Add tomato, garlic, salt and black pepper. Put crock pot on low and let cook all day until beans are tender and cooking water turns brown.
