“I searched your website for the simple lima bean recipe that my mom used to make and the one that is served by many restaurants here in the south as a side dish. I couldn't find one, so I submitted my own. This is an easy, basic lima bean dish with ham, onion, and seasonings. Served over Mexican cornbread, it makes a delicious hearty meal. You can also do this on the stovetop. Just follow the directions on the back of the lima bean bag and add the seasonings. Slow cooker time is about 7 hours. Add a side salad for a complete meal.”

These beans are killer! Followed recipe exactly except added a tsp of habanero hot sauce. Beans aren't "spicy" but have a very rich flavor... will make a double batch next time! Quick soaked, then into the crockpot, covered with water, 4 hours on high, added the spices, and that was it! Didn't cook any longer.

Good news ~ Bad news......I did as directed in the recipe but did add a can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos. Good news ~ the beans are fantastic! Bad news ~ I did high for the first 3 hours, added the cajun seasoning and pepper and then to low for 4 hours. The beans were still too hard at the end of the 4 hours on low. Back to high for an additional 1 1/2 hours and the beans are done!!
