    I prepared this recipe before and served it at a potluck where it was a hit. i recommend using no salt and 1/2 tbls. of the creole seasoning.

    I added a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and put over yellow rice....used ham and smoked sausage...really good.

    Tried it with ham ... Not sure why ... I'm a born and raised Louisiana country girl and this recipe isn't like what I am use to. Not bad, just lacking in the authentic flavor of the south. But if you don't know the difference, it shouldn't matter.

    I didn’t slow cook it but I cooked the beans real low for several hours on the stove and then I followed the rest of the directions. I love this recipe I will use it again! I definitely think that small red beans make this meal taste better.

    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.
