Easy Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice Recipe

Updated on February 11, 2013

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.

      I'd love to know what you think after you try it! I don't know if I have actually tried dry beans with this recipe, but I use them interchangeably in most of my recipes, so I'm sure it would work fine. You would want to do the pre-soaking ahead of time. Thanks for stopping by!

      I'm from New Orleans and LOVE red beans and rice. I can't wait to try this, thank you so much! Do you ever use non-canned beans but dry beans instead?
