Slow Cooker Recipe: New Orleans Beans & Sausage

New Orleans Beans & Sausage

2 (16 ounce) cans pinto beans, undrained
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

In slow cooker, combine all ingredients.  Mix well. Cover.  Cook on low 4 to 5 hours. Serve over rice if desired.  Makes 4 servings. 

Recipe can be found on page 141 in 
MY KIND OF COOKING COOKBOOK

This recipe is quicker than getting fast food from your favorite drive thru burger joint.  It's perfect for those times when you feel like there are just not enough hours in the day.  In under two minutes, you can have this meal prepped and in the slow cooker.  When you get home, your house will be filled with a delicious home cooked aroma.  

My husband sometimes likes weird flavor combination's.  I usually serve this recipe with cornbread.  He likes to put honey on his cornbread and that's not weird, it's just tasty.  One day he went a little crazy with the honey and poured it over his beans and sausage.  He justified his actions by saying he liked sweet and savory flavors together.  I know it sounds strange, but it is not half bad.  Pull out the honey bear and try it!

  3. Looks yum! Mostly in Asia, they make the beans sweeter, that's why it seems strange for my classmates living in Latin America. They said, they're not use to that kind of taste!

    By the way, thank you so much for leaving comments in my page.

    Happy Mother's Day! Have a Fabulous on Sunday!
