Slow Cooker Red Beans & Sausage Recipe

Publisher Photo
Being from Louisiana, red beans are my go-to for comfort food. Putting on a nice pot of red beans for our Sunday family dinner goes back generations in my family. Dig in with some hot buttered corn bread. —Lisa Bowie, Las Vegas, Nevada

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2014

"This is so amazing! I loved the flavor and the ease of this dish. I couldn't find andoille sausage at the store so I used premade chicken meatballs. Also, I didn't brown or saute anything. I just through everything in the pot. Absolutely delisious! I served this over white rice and it makes about 6 servings."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2014

"I made this yesterday. Very tasty and spicy! I would try 2 teaspoons of Creole seasoning if you don't like a lot of spice. The recipe makes a good amount; great for a family."
