Easy Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice Recipe
Red Beans and Rice
Red Beans and Rice is one of my family's favorites. I am so thankful that this is the recipe the family has liked the best, as it is also the easiest! It is inspired by a Betty Crocker recipe I found years ago, but I haven't been able to find it online, and we do a few things differently, anyway. You can add more hot pepper sauce and Cajun seasoning according to your own taste.
