Louisiana Red Beans & Rice

This is definitely, hands down one of my favorite crock pot recipes. It's so simple, healthy and full of flavor. You can make it spicy if you like or let the garlic and chicken broth flavor the dish on it's own. Even my kids love it so you know that makes anything a real winner.

Louisiana Red Beans & Rice

4 cans (16 oz each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 package (14 oz) smoked turkey sausage, sliced (I used kielbasa and it was delightful as well)
1 cup chicken broth
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flaked (optional)

In a slow cooker, combine the first 11 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until vegetables are tender. Stir and serve over rice.

Easy Peasy.
