This weeks Tasty Tuesday...
Simmered Red Beans & Rice
This was extremely easy to make and delicious. Perfect now that the weather's getting a little cooler!
Check out the recipe after the jump!
Chop all of your fresh ingredients.
Toss everything but the rice into your favorite slow cooker and mix well.
[I'm a big old baby and left the hot sauce out. It's pretty good without but if you like heat toss that in too!]
Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours OR on HIGH for 2-3 hours.
Mash slightly with a potato masher then cook on LOW another 30minutes to 1 hour.
Serve over rice. Garnish with green onions, cheese, etc.
I'll definitely be making this one again. It smells heavenly and took less than 20 minutes hands on time.
Hope you enjoy! ~Anna
