Boil rapidly on the stovetop for at least 10 minutes before draining and putting in the crockpot.
Per Stephanie O'Dea Red beans MUST be boiled on the stovebefored being added to the slow cooker to kill a possible toxin that occurs naturally.
Add onion, garlic and red pepper flakes.
Pour in the entire can of coconut milk(the creamy stuff, too) and chicken broth.
Stir in raw rice and kosher salt.

Before eating, squeeze on a bit of lime juice.
"These are some killer beans. I loved how everything cooked together in one pot and how coconuty the rice tasted. My grandma took home in a big Tupperware and reported back that they froze and reheated quite well(she nuked to reheat).".
