Keep the heat where it belongs by slow cooking these spicy red beans in New-Orleans style. Serves as a great side dish!

Ingredients

1/4
cup sliced celery
2
cans (15 1/2 ounces each) red kidney beans, drained
1
small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1
can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
Red pepper sauce, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Place celery in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Layer remaining ingredients except pepper sauce over celery.
  • 2 Cover and cook on low heat setting 4 to 6 hours or until desired consistency. Serve with pepper sauce.
Tips  

If you enjoy a bit of heat, shake in some red pepper sauce during the last hour of cooking, but not before, since hot sauce will become stronger-tasting and bitter over long, slow cooking. You can also pass a bottle of red pepper sauce at the table so everyone can season the beans as desired.

Pair these savory beans with spicy andouille sausage or shrimp hot off the grill, heaping spoonfuls of hot rice and a side of fried okra for a southern-style dinner experience.
