chili --kidney bean question

planning on making some chili--only have 1 can of kidney beans but have some dried kidney beans, that i have started soaking--my question is this:

once fully soaked overnight--will i need to cook the beans before putting them into my chili to cook... (am also considering cooking the chili s-l-o-w-l-y in a crock pot)or can i just put them into the chili and expect them to cook while in there?

thoughts, anyone?
