3 Cover the beans with about 6 cups of boiling chicken or vegetable broth. You could also use water but I like the additional flavor of broth. Make sure the water is boiling – this essentially eliminates the need to soak the beans overnight and is a good trick when cooking beans in the crockpot.

4 Add in the crispy bacon and the bacon drippings from the pan. Stir together and cook on low for 6-8 hours until beans are soft and tender.
