I have made this several times and love having a reliable red bean recipe for the crock pot! I soak the beans overnight to assure they're tender. I use 1 quart of organic beef stock, 1 cup water, and 3-4 Bay leaves. I also, like Katmenew, mash some of the beans to thicken the broth. Made it last night with an apple smoked ham hock and hot smoked sausage - fantastic! I always add a variety of heat - black and cayenne pepper, Cajun garlic pepper sauce, jalapeno sauce, and Jamaican hot sauce. My husband is from New Orleans so we know good red beans and rice - these are them.
