The Ingredients Needed to Prepare the Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

Prepare your Large Family Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice with the following important ingredients and items from my kitchen tools list:

  • Dried Red Beans. Sort and rinse the beans before you use them. If you like beans, try my Navy Bean and Ham recipe!
  • Ham Pieces. Chop ham into small pieces. Make sure you have about one pound of ham to use. You can use leftover ham from making ham in the instant pot.
  • Smoked Sausage. Cut your sausage in half and slice it down. You can use any smoked sausage you prefer, such as turkey smoked sausage or kielbasa. I also have a Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole.
  • Diced Tomatoes. Give your dish the perfect flavor and texture with diced tomatoes.
  • Bell Pepper. Chop your bell pepper into pieces and use at least a cup of it for this recipe.
  • Garlic. Use two cloves of garlic in this recipe to enhance the flavor of your rice.
  • Cooked Rice. You can use any type of rice you would like, such as long grain, short grain, or Jasmine rice. Learn how to make brown rice in the instant pot.

The other ingredients needed to prepare the Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice include chopped celery, chopped onion, bay leaves, dried thyme, dried oregano, ground white pepper, ground cayenne pepper, and water.

What to Serve With Your Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

This dish is filling on its own, but maybe you want the meal to stretch so you want to add a few things. I have lots of great recipes. You can also serve it with assorted vegetables, such as collard greens, broccoli, or even corn on the cob. I think it would also be great to add some cornbread, low-carb cornbread, regular bread or muffins, or a salad. Finally, maybe you want a tasty dessert or a baked good. Kids love desserts and they do stretch the meal to save some for lunch leftovers. Try adding one of my 20+make-ahead cookies from the freezer, Strawberry Trifle (yum!), Banana Heath Pudding, or Peanut Butter Cheesecake.
