We have been eating a lot of beans around here! My friends at Hurst’s Beans sent me a bunch of different beans to try and my kids have suddenly fallen in love with them!  We have been eating beans a lot since they are packed with protein and can be prepared in so many ways. Our most recent creation, Slow Cooker Cajun 15 Bean Stew was actually a favorite of my daughters (which she called “awesome!”) so we will definitely be making this recipe again soon!  (Note: I leave the hot sauce out until the end since my kids don’t care for much spice.)

  1. Rinse beans and place in a 6-Quart slow cooker. Add enough water to cover the beans by about 5-6 inches. Soak overnight.
  2. Drain beans and return to slow cooker.
  3. Set sausage aside and add remaining ingredients, including the Cajun Seasoning packet to the slow cooker. Stir well to combine.
  4. Cover and cook on the LOW setting for 8 Hours.
  5. With about an hour left for the beans to cook, slice the sausage and brown in a skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer to slow cooker.
  6. Continue cooking until the beans have cooked for 8 hours and are nice and soft.
  7. Remove about 1 cup of beans and transfer to a food processor or blender. Pulse to puree and return to the slow cooker.
  8. Stir all ingredients to combine. Taste, and add a bit of hot sauce if needed.
  9. Serve in a bowl as a stew or serve over rice. This is delicious with a thick slice of corn bread!
