Ingredients

    16 oz. bag of dry small red beans

    1 medium yellow onion, chopped

    1 medium green pepper, chopped

    1-14oz. pkg of turkey smoked sausage, chopped

    2T of creole seasoning

    3 cups of broth (whichever flavor you like best)

    8 cups of brown rice, cooked

Directions

Soak beans according to package directions overnight.


Drain, beans and place in a stockpot covering the beans with 6-8 cups of water. Boil for 10 minutes. Drain.


Place beans along with remaining ingredient into a crock-pot (slow cooker) and cover. Set on HIGH for 4-6 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.


I personally like my beans WELL DONE so I set mine to HIGH for the whole 8 hours. This is a personal preference.


I also like take the back of a wooden spoon and smash through some of the beans. This will help thicken up the dish a bit too if the beans haven't absorbed most of the liquid. Again, a personal preference and you do not have to do this. If you would rather have a thinner consistency to your sauce you may even want to increase your broth to 4 cups.


This recipe makes approximately 8 cups of Red Beans (16 servings). Serve 1/2-cup of beans over 1/2-cup of cooked brown rice. Enjoy!
