Every recipe I find for beans calls for a ton of water. When I make the beans in a crockpot I end up with bean soup, not just beans the way I want them.
I made beans today and I guessed. I used 4 cups dried beans and 8 cups water. I still ended up with bean soup and the spices I put in it are now diluted because of it.
How can I make a bean dish that is Not soup. What is the right amount of water and how do I cook them so they come out right?

Did you drain the water you let them soak in? I've done the quick soak method with black beans and they were perfect for the recipe after I drained them.
I find that many things I cook in the crockpot come out extremely soft. DD hates the texture of anything I cook in one.
