Great & easy recipe! I deviated somewhat from the basic recipe after reading reviews and using what I had on hand. My wife had bought some ground ham in the deli, so I used a 1/2 Lbs. of that. I had a bag of 15 beans and soaked them overnight (did NOT use the flavor packet with it). I started with a 28oz can of diced tomatoes, 1 chopped medium onion, about a half cup each of chopped green and red pepper (frozen from bags in the freezer), 2 tsp. crushed jar garlic, brown sugar & spices as indicated. Added the beans & homemade chicken stock instead of water I had on hand.
About 6 hours in, chopped 1 Lbs. of turkey kielbasa in half moons (less five inches that I grilled and put on a hotdog bun for lunch)& added it to crockpot.
11 hours in it was still to soupy for my taste. I skimmed out about 1 cup of liquid, cool it in fridge, then whisked in about 4 TBL of flour to the cool liquid. Added mixture back to crockpot to thicken to light gravy type texture. Everyone loved it - a keeper!
