Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

This is a great meal if you're in a hurry. Just throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and forget about it! If you replace uncooked rice for a can of beans, it would really be a one pot wonder!


  • 4 cans (16 ounces each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 package (14 ounces) smoked turkey sausage, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Hot cooked rice


  • In a 4-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 11 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until heated through. Stir before serving. Discard bay leaf.
  • Sprinkle each serving with onions. Serve with rice. Yield: 9 servings.
