Recipe: Crockpot Red Beans and Sausage

Red Beans 8

This is a super yummy and tasty dish. Crockpot Red Beans and Sausage is so easy to make and you will make this again and again. My family loves it! Serve it over white rice in a big bowl, make sure to have some Tabasco or hot sauce on the side! Set this up in the morning before work and forget it!

Red Bean Ingredients


1 pound dried red beans
3 cups water
4 cups of Chicken stock
2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped Yellow or Red
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 pound andouille sausage and smoked sausage sliced to 1/4 inch thick (or you can use just one or the other)
3 garlic cloves, chopped or 2 Tablespoons of minced garlic from a jar
4 tablespoons Creole seasoning
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon of Chili Powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons hot sauce
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cups cooked rice

(For a healthier option use 7 cups of water and omit the chicken stock, use turkey sausage, and brown rice.)


Check red beans for any small pebbles then rinse thoroughly.

Add beans, water, and chicken broth to the crock pot.

Chop all the veggies and add to the crock pot.

Red Beans Veggies

Next, chop the sausage.

Complete it with creole seasoning (I used Tony Chachere’s) and spices.

Red Beans Spices

Turn the crock pot on high for 7 hours. When ready to eat, prepare your rice.

(Don’t forget to take out your bay leaves!)

Pour  your crockpot red beans and sausage over rice and serve. I like to serve with hot sauce or Tabasco, and a side of corn bread!

  1. This is recipe is so delicious!, This is why I love checking out the food section loll because sometimes I find a recipe that I have not made in so long and it gives me the chance to make it again .

  2. This sounds okay. I wouldn’t use much if any garlic, unless I roasted it first. And, I’d skip the sausage. I can’t eat anything that has those hard little pieces of gristle in it.I do enjoy beans and rice though. Everyone has different tastes. You may not like half the foods that I enjoy.

  3. I’d have to leave out the spicy stuff and then I think I’d really like it. And it’s so easy ! Thank you !!

  17. So you don’t need to soak the beans overnight or anything?

  18. Deb E (@debbieeland) says:

    I do soak my beans overnight but you can use a quick boil method to speed things up. I make pinto and black beans a lot and store them dry when they go on sale. Love spices though not much for sausage.

    At first, I thought this seemed like a lot of prep, but it’s really just gathering the ingredients. Looks SO good! I’d add extra garlic. LOVE spicey, flavorful things. And let the crockpot do all the work. Pinned & planned, it’s gonna be yummy!

  60. This looks so delicious. We will have to give it a try

  61. Sherry Keef says:

  67. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe on Crockpot Red Beans and Sausage! It looks very delicious! I just love Crockpot dishes! Put everything in and let it go! Since I’m on such a strict budget at the grocery store, there isn’t much room for me to purchase items which we “really” do not need. I saw sausage the other week on sale when I was there and I did purchase it. I made the sausages because we hadn’t had sausage in a long time. I make them with fried onions and green peppers and sauce. We had some rolls and made sausage sandwiches. My husband said that he did not like the sausage because it was too spicy for him. It had a small kick to it but I didn’t think it was that noticeable! It’s hard to purchase sausage because if I cannot get the plain old country pork sausage, he doesn’t like it! I know I would love most of the ingredients in this tasty dish, however, I have to think of my “picky, picky” family! I have saved your recipe and I’ll have to give it a try when there are left overs or something else for the hubby to eat! Thanks again for sharing your recipe with all of us! I honestly do appreciate it! It really looks good! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

  68. Thanks for sharing. My husband will appreciate this one. He loves this food. I will be figuring oput how to save this one once I’m done commenting here. Again thanks

  69. This something my husband would just love to have and would love the leftovers for the next night. Thanks for the recipe!

  70. Crockpots are such a help in the kitchen. Fix it, forget about it, eat it.

    We are always looking for different ways to prepare sausage…

  82. I LOVE this recipe –thanks for sharing

  83. Thanks for the Recipe Crockpot Red Beans and Sausage! This looks very good! I love to cook in the crockpot! You just add the ingredients and let it cook!

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe for Crockpot Red Beans and Sausage with all of us! I truly appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe. This something would love to make.

  89. Barrie Mac says:

    So my teen says she likes bland foods with little to no seasoning but she tends to eat more of foods that I add spices to! I think she would love this recipe and I won’t tell her what’s in it!

  90. Dandi D says:

    If beans didn’t bother me so much during pregnancy, I would try this right now!

  91. I like a spicy bean and rice dish. No sausage for me. By themselves, I don’t care too much for beans or rice. But, with the right seasonings it’s really good.

  92. This would be good today. Snowed overnight and more forecast for later today.

  105. Carissa joslyn says:

    Add a little ranch dressing into that mix, maybe steak sauce and it would be perfect! I kind of want to make this now! Without the onions..I’m not a fan of those weird things.

  106. Oh my gosh, I *just* made this last weekend, after I bookmarked it WAYYY earlier this year (I think I saw it on my FB feed somewhere?). It was SO good! I thought it was mostly going to be a “me” meal…but my daughter inhaled probably half of it!! Who knew? Cornbread is a MUST 🙂

  107. Elizabeth H. says:

    WOW, I’m planning to make this this Saturday, I printed it out!! It looks great!! Everyone in my family is going to love this!

  108. It’s been really hot here in central Florida and my crockpot has been working overtime! I’ve been looking for new crockpot recipes to try and this one is definitely going on my list! Thank you for sharing.

  109. Try using cooked barley instead of rice- it’s lower on the glycemic index and offers some extra texture to this dish.

  120. I love Crockpot recipes and this sounds great! I can’t wait to try it out, thanks!

  121. clojo9372 says:

    I absolutely love sausage so this meal really appeals to me. I have a crockpot but I don’t use it much, this looks like a recipe I should use with it! 🙂

  122. This is a version of the great comfort food of my home (New Orleans); served as Red Beans n’ Rice. It has diced Bell Peppers in it and Andouille Sausage but is otherwise the same.

  123. I finally have a slow cooker, and this is exactly the kind of recipe I’ve been wanting to make. It sounds so good, I’m excited to try it!
