Beans in chili not quite done

I made some chili a few weeks ago (froze it in quarts). What I didn't realize was that my beans (small black and white northern) were not quite done (boiled from dry). Do you think if I added liquid to the chili and cooked it for a while, the beans would continue to soften? It's edible but not great. TIA ~Bliss

That should work.

i always soak beans overnight before cooking in slow cooker. i would think just cooking more would do the trick.

YES! It worked, I added a few cups of water and cooked them low for another hour in the chili, and they are fine now. Whew! Thank you. ~Bliss
