  9. Simmer for 5 hours, stirring occassionally. Beans should be soft and the soup should be thick, not watery. You can use a potato masher to break down more of the beans for added thickness. NOTE: Check beans after 2 hours, adding a little more water if necessary.
  10. Add vinegar, stirring to combine. Simmer uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.
  11. Serve with sour cream or over rice, if desired. Enjoy!
