Rice and Beans

In my on-going attempt to add new dishes and variety to my repertoire, I have an urge to make rice and beans. I'm sure it's relatively easy, but I don't know where to begin. I've never cooked beans before. Red beans? Black beans? Something other kind of beans?

My goal here is to have something that can be cooked a day or so in advance, like on a Sunday, so my children can eat it during the week. They are (almost) 3 years old and 10 months old, and luckily they are good eaters, so I'm always trying to introduce them to new and tasty dishes. Don't want anything too spicy, although moderately spicy is okay.

Also, I'm always looking for a reason to cook things in my LeCreuset dutch ovens, but I've been contemplating buying a slow cooker. Not even sure which you would use for basic rice and beans.

Any suggestions would be appreciated...Thanks!
