Slow Cooker Boiled Peanuts – raw peanuts, water and salt – put in the slow cooker and let simmer overnight. Add seasonings to water – great with crab boil seasoning, jalapeños and cajun seasoning! Perfect for summer BBQs and football tailgating!
I recently received a copy of Quick-Fix Southern by Rebecca Lang to check out. I thumbed through all the mouth-watering recipes, and this Slow Cooker Boiled Peanuts recipe caught my eye. Chicken Legs and I have never had boiled peanuts; I think that might actually be a sin here in the South! We decided to give them a try. I am so glad we did. We both gave the peanuts two thumbs up. Chicken Legs is totally addicted to these peanuts. We took some of them to our tailgate last weekend, and I can assure you that we will be taking some to another tailgate this year.
Quick-Fix Southern is filled with over 100 quick and easy recipes. It even has a whole chapter dedicated to tailgating!!
