I have a recipe for crockpot chili beans. It calls for 2 cans of drained pinto beans. Will this make the beans to mushy? It says to slow cook for 7-8 hrs.

I use both canned and dried beans for chilli. It should be ok at 7-8 hours. It depends on whether you're cooking on high or low. But check it after about 4 and see how done it is. My problem with crockpot chili is getting it thick enough.

Too long for canned beans, 4 or 5 is more like it.

You can also add the beans the last hour of 2 before serving.
