A nice Southern dish modified for the crock pot. If you like a little spicy then ad 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper.

I let these cook on high in my small slow cooker for hours-maybe even 6 or so. I like them to get thicker. Since I was keeping them meat free I did add some smoked sea salt. Easy recipe, especially using canned bean, convenient and can do any time. I like all the herbs that were added and they have a good flavor without being overwhelming in any way. Good with a variety of meals, could add cumin etc if want more of a Latin flavor or even curry for an Indian inspired flavor etc....We had them with a cornbread recipe I found here on Food. com. with some zucchini stuffed enchiladas. Very good.
