Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 lb dried red beans (pink or kidney beans); soaked overnight
4 cups cold water
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 lb can tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp crushed red pepper (or 2 tsp chili powder)
2 tsp salt
1/4 lb salt pork or bacon, chopped

Put the soaked and drained beans into crock-pot (or slow cooker).  Add water all remaining ingredients.  Cover and cook on high 2 hours, then turn to low for 8 hours.
