For this red beans recipe, we use dry red beans instead of canned. Cooking dry beans from scratch is easy and very cost effective. In fact, dry beans are a frugal menu plan favorite. Some soak their beans overnight, while others simply prefer to slowly cook them in a Slow Cooker like this recipe. Either way works, but anything I can do to eliminate a step I always appreciate, so slow cooking is my favorite.

This Cajun dish is a great option for those who like a bit more spice in their meals. It can also be easy to adjust the flavors to a little spicier or much milder for kids and adults who prefer a different flavor profile. The addition of fresh vegetables and your choice of classic andouille sausage or a leaner smoked turkey sausage give you the ability to make this a healthy but hearty recipe. Red beans are a naturally low-fat food, so it’s easy to keep this a healthy dish.
