Makes 10 servings
Active Prep Time: 10 minutes and an additional 20 minutes prior to serving  Cook Time: 8 hours – 10 hours on low or 6 – 8 hours on high

“This is a taste of home for me.  Comfort food at it’s finest.  For those of you who have never tried it, you are in for a real treat.  This is a true Cajun dish.”

1 lb bag kidney beans
12-14 cups water
3 beef bouillon cubes
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning – found on any seasoning aisle
1 lb smoked sausages – sliced
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup flour
1 onion – chopped
4 cloves garlic – minced
4 cups rice – cooked

1)  In a crock-pot, add  beans, water, bouillon cubes, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and Cajun seasoning.  Cook on high for 6 – 8 hours or low for 8 – 10 hours.

2)  At least 1 hour prior to serving (can be any time before that), brown sausage in a large skillet.  Transfer sausage to beans.

3)  In your same sausage skillet, add an additional 1/3 cup of oil to your sausage grease and sauté onion and garlic.  When onions become clear, add 1/3 cup of flour to oil and onions.  Stir into a paste.  Add flour paste to beans and stir well. Continue cooking, flour clumps will work their way out.

4)  Serve over rice.
