  1. What a lovely dish! We just have started using our slow cooker and currently on the lookout for slow cooker recipes to try. This one totally caught our attention. We love red beans and we think we'll love this recipe just as much. We're bookmarking this now. Thanks for sharing Steph. :)

  4. I've never had red beans & rice, and haven't ever had Cajun food because I'd been told it's spicy. I can't handle spice above "Mild" (think Mild salsa or Mild sauce packets @Taco Bell). Should I, then, use only 1 Tbs Cajun seasoning? Or even less? Thanks!

  5. This wasn't spicy. You could reduce the Cajun seasoning to 1 tablespoon, but I wouldn't go less than that.

  8. Steph I also love your blog. Your recipes are not too fancy for us plain folks and most of the ingredients are in the pantry. I have not been following you long but I pin most your recipes on Pinterest and always have lots of repins.

  9. We have red beans and rice quite often. There is now a packaged red beans...has the seasoning packet that is too perfection. All you do is add your sausage and water.Has directions on the package. It is called Ragin Cajun Fixins..OMG it is wonderful. I'm cajun and you can't beat this product LOL.

  10. Sorry, I am late getting here. I was busy doing side bends and sit ups:)

    Red beans and rice rock, one of my favorite side dishes but I don't make them often enough. I like how easy your version is!

  11. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks of "Baby Got Back" when I hear "red beans and rice!"

    This looks great!

  12. I Googled to see what's in Cajun seasoning, and I'll just make my own with less cayenne pepper. This is from allrecipes that makes 1/4 cup. Just store airtight!

    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 1/4 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 1/4 teaspoons dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

    I think that the seasonings combination sounds very tasty, and I can't wait to try your recipe!

  14. Found you through Pinterest several weeks ago. I made this recipe last week (with quinoa instead of rice because it cooks faster than the brown rice I had)and wanted to tell you it was so good. We are Texans transplated to West Virginia and I swear these people up here think tomato sauce is spicy!! I saw in comments you said the dish wasn't spicy as is, but it was REALLY spicy to us (no complaints here), maybe the Creole seasoning I use is spicier than Cajun seasoning? Anyway, we LOVED it just as it was. Thank you for your blog. I love it!! (I've also made the chicken cordon bleu casserole and making the taco crescent bake tonight).

  15. I LOVED this recipe! Even better with a little bit of chopped up chipotle in adobo sauce for a little more kick plus a teaspoon of liquid smoke. Thanks!

  16. I was too lazy to change out of my PJs and go to the store (all day) to pick up a bell pepper and some Worcestershire, but it still came out AMAZING! So excited!! Love all of your recipes... The sausage cheese muffins are always a hit and this is going to become a regular in my house!!

  17. Also... When I think Red Beans and Rice, I think of the song by Spearhead :). http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=stGYYRtpqx8&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DstGYYRtpqx8

  18. I've never had red beans and rice before but your recipe looked so delicious I just had to try it yesterday. It came out great! My husband and I both loved it. I'm eating it for lunch today and it is even tastier. Thanks!

  19. I tried this for the first time a few weeks ago-came across it on Pinterest. It was delicious! Every bit of this dish was eaten. I used a spicy chicken andouille sausage, instead of the smoked turkey, but followed everything else to the letter. It was spicy (which I love), but a little salty. I don't know if I need to reduce the cajun seasonings or try a different sausage. I have a spicy Chorizo on hand and thinking about trying that one out. I'll let you know how it turns out.

  21. So do you have to soak the beans before putting them in the crockpot?
