Cover the slow cooker and cook on high until beans are very tender, about 5 hours.

Add kielbasa rounds to slow cooker and cook another 20-30 minutes, until heated through and flavors have a chance to meld.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

Tip
Add sautéed greens or a grain like rice as a side to make it a meal.
