This is a great rexipet to go by! I always modify recipes, adding more spices to our taste!
very good bit seemed to be missing something.
*Cook time is not 65 minutes, please read the directions. Beans came out fantastic though

I love this recipe. I've done both lean ham and the Cajun sausages but the kids eat the ham better

I simmered on stovetop instead so I could control the thickness. I followed all the steps and Ingredients up until putting in crockpot. Smashed some beans at every stir to increase thickness. I used andouille, quartered. Love the way it turned out, and the heat is really nice. Really salty though... not sure if it's the creole seasoning or the reduction of the sauce, but wow! Gonna reduce the creole next time a bit, probably half.

Great recipe! I use the canned dark red beans, low sodium with smoked ham diced into smaller than bite sized pieces and sauteed chicken andouille sausage on the side.
