On this fine Mardi Gras day, you should embrace the spirit of the festivities and cook a classic Cajun or Creole dish. Do you love gumbo? Go for it! Craving a sweet King Cake? Get to baking! Wanting to use some of those dried beans in pantry? How about a hoppin’ john or red beans and rice like this one? The beauty of this version of a classic pot of creamy red beans, fluffy white rice and spicy sausage is that is is slow-cooked in the crock pot. The beans need to be soaked overnight of course, but in the crock pot itself this dish will be ready in about 4 hours time. A perfect pairing for any of these classic Louisiana dishes is your favorite Abita beer and of course, a dash (or four) of your favorite hot sauce.
