I should have gone to the grocery store this Sunday afternoon, but I took a nap instead. But before I crashed out onto the couch, I decided to hunt down something in the pantry to cook for supper. I found some brown rice and two cans of red beans, and this is what I came up with.
Basic Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice
2 cans of red beans, juice and all
1 cup brown rice
2 cups of water*
2 chicken bouillon cubes* (I used Wyler’s Chicken flavor Herbs and Spices bouillon cubes)
Salt and pepper to taste
*You could also substitute 2 cups of chicken broth for the water and bouillon cubes
Place all the ingredients in your crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours. The. End.
I called this recipe “basic” because you could easily jazz it up any way you like. The recipe as written was very yummy! I imagine it could be even yummier to add your favorite seasonings, onions, bell pepper and some sausage. But, if you just need a cheap, quick and easy meal, this is it!
