Take a trip down to the "Bayou" with the long-cooked tastes of our slow-cooker Red Beans and Rice. This one's packed with lots of authentic New Orleans flavor without having to leave home.

What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 (16-ounce) package andouille sausage, sliced
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen seasoning blend
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon prepared minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked converted long-grain rice (see note)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans red beans, rinsed and drained

What to Do

  1. In a 4-quart slow cooker, place all ingredients except beans; stir well.
     
  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 3-1/2 hours. Stir in beans; cover and cook on HIGH setting 30 minutes or until beans are thoroughly heated. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

     

Notes

Converted long-grain rice is the best bet for this slow-cooker favorite because it requires a longer cooking time than regular white rice. And for authentic New Orleans flavor, be sure to use andouille sausage for its spicy, smoky flavor.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My family loves jambalaya, dirty rice, and gumbo, so we will definitely like this red beans and rice recipe. It looks amazing and easy to cook in the slow cooker. I've seen similar recipes that have a very long list of ingredeints. This is more my cooking style--simple! Can't wait to make it next weekend, and serve with a cucumber salad and some freshly baked bread.

I would like to know what a 1 10 ounce package of frozen seasoning blend is. Please email me the answer at irish0509@aol.com Thanks !!

Hi there! Frozen seasoning blend can be found near the other frozen vegetables in the grocery store. Most seasoning blends have chopped onions, peppers, and celery. It's a great shortcut!

is it 1 adn 3/4 cup or just 3/4 cup?

Hi, it's 1 AND 3/4 cup. If it was just 3/4 cup it wouldn't have a 1 in front of the measurement.

Excellent. Used fresh onion, green pepper and 4 stalks celery. Would cook for shorter time. Served with fresh diced onions and sour cream. Will make again.

Just a side note and a BIG thanks to Kamoneyas for clarifying what they were talking about with "Frozen Seasoning Blend" .... For some of us older cooks who like to try new recipes that was confusing ... Also, you may find that the mixture of bell pepper, onions and celery is sometimes referred to as the Trinity.

FOR ALL OF YOU WHO DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT SEASONING BLEND IS: IT IS FROZEN GREEN BELL PEPPER, ONIONS, & CELERY, AND SOMETIMES THEY HAVE RED BELL PEPPER IN THEM, AND YES THESE ARE CONSIDERED SEASON, AND ITS GREAT! THOUGH I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS RECIPE, I KNOW THAT THIS BLEND IS GREAT IN A NUMBER OF RECIPES...... I HOPE THIS HELPS....

kamoneyas 9187876, I di dnot know what frozen seasoning blend was. Thank you for the tip.

THANKS FOR IDENTIFYING THE SEASONING BLEND MIX, I ALSO DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS.

What is a 10 oz. pack of frozen seasoning blend?

Frozen seasoning blend is a mix of chopped onions, celery, green & red peppers and parsley flakes. You can find it in the freezer section near the vegetables. Enjoy!

I found the frozen seasoning next to the 20 oz. pack of whipped spices in Costco!

Sad sounding representation of our famous red beans and rice-and I live in New Orleans---

Is this any good

The red beans and rice is it good cooked this way

I agree with you. I'm from Ponchatoula, LA now living in Texas. Paul Prudhomme's recipe for red beans and rice is by far the best there is. You most certainly DO NOT use canned red beans...yuck...

I have cooked dry beans hundreds of times and also used canned beans in my recipes there is very very little if any difference and canned beans saves time Paul 's TV show is exactly that a TV show ! been cooking and baking fro over55 years

Grandmabenny is right!

What exactly is frozen seasoning blend???

but seasoning is herbs and spices not veggies?

there are alot of recipes that refer to 10 oz frozen seasoning the only thing i can guess is that frozen soup has something to do with it. must have some frozen seaoning in the frozen goods will look when im at the store. wish when it says see not there actually was a note.

I found this: Someone mentioned this, but it's a blend of chopped onion, peppers, celery and parsley (something like that). And it's located next to the frozen potatoes. The brand I've used is McKenzie's.

MY question, exactly... can someone PLEASE fill me in?
