I recently made beans and rice in the crockpot. I've made this tasty warm-me-up dish before but never in the crockpot. It tasted so much better! I can't believe I've never made them this way before! For our family of 4, I did this...
Soak 1/2 lb. of red beans overnight. In the morning, drain the water and put beans in the crockpot along with...
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
bacon slices, cut up (turkey bacon is fine)
salt and pepper
I combined all of this with the beans and put enough water to go over the beans by 1 inch. Cook on low for 10-12 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste. These beans were delicious served over rice and with a side of cornbread!
