Slow-Cooker New Orleans Red Beans and Rice

Two words: absolutely delish.  I had my mother in law and sister in law over for dinner yesterday and every single one of us couldn't stop eating this dish!!  It was so beyond easy too.  I've never cooked with dried beans before so I was a bit nervous.  Nope, don't be with this dish!  So so good.  It does have a slight spice/kick to it, but we all loved it!

1 pound dried red beans
7 cups water
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped 
3 celery stalks, chopped 
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 pound andouille sausage, sliced
3 tablespoons Creole seasoning
Hot cooked rice 
Garnish: sliced green onions (optional)

Place first 8 ingredients in a 4-quart slow cooker.
Cook, covered, at HIGH 7 hours or until beans are tender. Serve with hot cooked rice. Garnish, if desired.

Gluten free: use GF creole seasoning or your own combination of seasonings.

  1. I love this recipe. I will be making it for the 3rd time shortly! The only thing that I changed was I fry the sausage first to get it a little brown and crispy. We also enjoy corn bread to go along with it.
