Our at home Mardi Gras celebration continues with red beans and rice. I don’t know about you, but I can’t say red beans and rice without busting into Sir Mix Alot’s Baby Got Back. “Give me a sista I can’t resist her – Red beans and rice didn’t miss her” 

We made a big pot of red beans and rice last weekend, and it really hit the spot! We both gave this rave reviews.  This version of red beans and rice could not be easier; just toss everything in the crock pot and let it slow cook all day. There is no need to presoak the beans, just toss them in the crock pot with the rest of the ingredients. We whipped up a pan of cornbread to complete the meal. Don’t miss these red beans and rice!

  1. 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!

  2. 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).

  3. 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!

    1. I am currently making this. It has been in the crockpot 10 hours and the beans do not seem to be done. Does it take longer than the 10 hours mentioned in the instructions?

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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. 🙂
