Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice


I went to Louisiana years ago and first tried Red Beans and Rice and I finally decided I could make them in the Crock Pot to save time and have them ready when we came home just as easily and they still would tasted delicious.


what you need:
1 pound dried red beans
1/2 pound andouille sausage, chopped
3 ribs celery, chopped
1 smoked ham shank
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
Kosher salt
4 cups chicken stock

8 cups cooked long-grain white rice, for serving
4 scallions, chopped

How to make it:
In a crock pot, combine the beans, andouille, celery, ham shank, onions, bell peppers, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne, onion powder, paprika, brown sugar and 2 teaspoons salt. Add the chicken stock and 2 cups water and stir to mix.

Cook on the high setting until the beans are tender, 6 to 8 hours. Season with salt. Serve with rice, topped with green onions if desired.
