The next morning, add the beans to a crock pot along with 2 to 3 ham hocks, red pepper flakes, thyme, and a bay leaf. They’ll need to cook on LOW for about 5 hours. Take the ham hocks out. The meat should fall right off the bone. Discard the bone and the grisly parts, shred the meat, and return it to the crock pot. Season the beans with salt and pepper.

If you want your beans spicy, serve with some Tabasco sauce.
