Sort and wash the Red Beans. In a large mixing bowl, cover the beans with water and soak overnight. Drain the beans the next morning.
Brown the bacon and drain it on a paper towel
In the skillet with the bacon fat saute the sausage,bell pepper, onion, and garlic
Add the Red Beans, sauteed sausage,bell pepper, onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, Worcestershire, and tomato sauce to a Slow Cooker and mix well.
Cover the Red Bean, sausage and vegetable mix with water then add the Tabasco and Cayenne
Cover the Slow Cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours

Recipe Tip
Be sure and invite a friend to enjoy this Cajun delight with you or plan on left overs. This dish freezes well for up to 3 months. I freeze a bag of the beans and a bag of the rice then put both in a larger bag and the whole meal is ready to go.

  1. Another winning menu this week Miz Helen. I'm serving red beans and rice for Mardi Gras too. Have a great week! :)

    I'd never considered corn bread pudding, but I'm pretty sure I would love it! Just one thing: licking the plates -- this is acceptable, yes?
