"Born and raised in Louisiana, this is a Monday staple. Red kidney beans slow cooked with smoked sausage served over rice with cornbread on the side. Yum!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I refer to this recipe every time. It is absolutely amazing! - I know several ways to prepare red beans as well as pinto beans- this one is by far the best and very worth the tine and ingredients to make it.
Pretty good meal... Needed salt!!!!
Pretty darn good nice and easy
I omitted the bay leaf and added a can of rotel tomatoes.
Loved this. I had to make it with what I had on hand. I soaked the beans over night. I then started them in the crockpot with chicken broth I had frozen. I used no water. I did add 2 bay leaves. I added a few slices of sausage for flavor. I had garlic head I had roasted and added that with onion. I added paprika and cayenne pepper. The beans cooked most of the day and night because I like using the low setting. I mashed some when done to add creamy texture. I then added the rest of the sausage and had some chicken I added too. It tasted wonderful.
The only changes I made was that I left out the celery and I swapped the bell pepper for a jalapeno pepper, because I don't like celery or bell peppers.
Very tasty and easy to make. The beans were much more tender than any of the times I've tried to cook them on the stove top. I added some salt and pepper after the cooking was done, as instructed, but didn't need to add nearly as much as I thought I would. I guess a lot of the saltiness from the smoked sausage worked its way into the beans.
I added a can of rotel tomatoes, but thought it was still a little bland.
This was absolutely amazing! I doubled the recipe for the sole purpose of having leftovers. However I only added 1.5 times the water because it wouldn't fit into the slow-cooker. Still turned out beautifully and I have leftovers. The most important part is the nutrition of this meal. I may choose a ham hock next time to decrease the amount of fat (possibly), but this is still a very healthy meal!! Would be perfect with a touch of Tabasco sauce and side of corn bread. Enjoy.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
