Slow cooked Beans & Ham

Sometimes I get in the mood to really fix a meal - that includes everything from scratch. Other times when time is short, I like to make do. Below is a recipe I took to a potluck a couple months ago & got some great comments on it. How simple can it be?

Fast - Slow Cooked Beans & Ham
2 cans pinto beans
1 can pinto beans with jalapenos
1 can black beans (rinsed)
1-2 cans great northern beans
1 can red or pink beans
(optional: can of black eyed peas and/or a can of kidney beans)
1 pkg diced ham
1 ham hock
(optional: onion)

About 4 hours before meal time, empty all the cans into a crock pot. I only drain the black beans. Add diced ham & ham hock. You can dice up some onion and throw in as well (or dice it up and let each person add it to their beans when served). Turn on high and let cook.
To serve: You can serve as a soup or just as a side dish. Garnish with onion or green onion. Serve with crackers.
