Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

Slow cooker red beans and rice is so full of Cajun flavor and so easy to prepare!  We make this recipe at least once a month.  The whole family loves this stuff.  

Eight ingredients, chopped, dumped and cooked for hours.  This is perfect to start in the morning before work or a busy day and just forget it until dinner.

How easy is that? Who doesn’t need an easy slow cooker recipe every now and then?

Cook for 7 hours on high or until the beans are tender. If it’s not thick enough remove the lid for an hour.

Serve over cooked rice.  

I prefer the taste and texture of andouille sausage but you could use smoked sausage if you like.

Try serving this with our No Knead Dutch Oven Bread.
