I am making a game plan on crockpot chili and attempting to obtain information. Here is the situation, 1) this is the first time of my using dried beans so I am trying to get this correct, 2) when I do the chili in the crockpot I have a plan to place everything into the crock then set time for 10 hours.
The question I am unsure on is if the overnight soak step can be skipped or if it is still needed. I have dried pinto beans but am considering dried kidney beans instead. Thank you in advance for responses.
