How long does it take to cook red beans and rice?
Ideally, you should soak the dry beans overnight before you cook them. But, you can speed up the process by heating a pot of water and dry beans to a boil for about 10 minutes. You then turn off the heat and let them sit for about 2 hours. I don’t cook with a crock pot, so I don’t know how long the beans would take to cook in one. If they were just being cooked on the stove, you would be looking at about an hour.
