Rinse and sort the beans. Place beans in a slow cooker container, add 12 cups of water. Cover and let sit overnight with no heat on. Drain off the water. Add vegetable broth, 10 cups fresh water, oregano, pepper, salt, garlic, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, carrots, onion, and potatoes. Cook on low 8 to 9 hours or until beans are very tender. Sprinkle with oregano and freshly ground pepper. Sprinkle each bowl with chopped red onion. Serve with warm corn tortillas.
Note: The soup can be prepared on the stove. After soaking the dried beans overnight, bring the soup to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until the beans are very tender.
