Effortless Red Beans a Rice

Ok this isn't the way u make them for reals but its less work and they come out pretty good! my Baby Bug loves them too, fiber protein with little effort from me!

You will need
8oz of red beans
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 green peppers-the kind you would eat with a pastrami sandwich
1/2 a chicken bullion cube
1/4 a teaspoon of garlic powder
2cups of rice (cooked how ever u want)

Submerge your beans in water, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and soak them for at least 6 hours

Pour the water out and place beans on your crock pot-again mine is a 1.5 liter so times and measurements could differ depending on what your cooking in

Submerge ur beans again in fresh water leave about 3inches of water floating above the beans

Add pepper, green peppers, chicken bullion cube, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt and garlic powder

Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

Reduce heat to Low and cook for another hours or until your beans are tender.

When done serve over rice and enjoy!

For my Baby Bug I mash some beans then mix my mashed beans with rice and serve to the baby bug.

Effortless just throw it in the pot and let it do the work, Great served as a meal or as a side dish.
