This simplified recipe lets your slow cooker do the work, with no hands-on attention required and no soaking. Just dump everything in, set it and forget it. Using pre-chopped trinity makes the process even easier.

  • 1 pound Andouille or smoked sausage, sliced or 1 large ham hock
  • 2 cups pre-chopped trinity (onions, celery, bell pepper)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 6-7 cups water or chicken broth
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Creole seasoning or hot sauce to taste
  • Hot cooked rice

  1. Rinse and sort beans.
  2. Put beans, sausage or ham hock, trinity, garlic powder and water in the slow cooker. Stir well and cover.
