Ingredients
  • 1  cup  dry red kidney beans
  • 1  smoked pork hock
  • 12  ounces  andouille sausage or cooked kielbasa, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 1/2  cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2  cup  chopped celery (1 stalk)
  • 1  tablespoon  tomato paste
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/8 - 1/4  teaspoon  cayenne pepper
  • 1 8.8 ounce package  cooked long grain rice
  • 1/2  cup  chopped red or yellow sweet pepper (1 small)
Directions

1. Rinse beans. In a large saucepan combine beans and 6 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans.

2. In a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker combine beans, pork hock, andouille, broth, onion, celery, tomato paste, garlic, thyme, oregano, and cayenne pepper.

3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 9 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

4. Remove pork hock. When cool enough to handle, cut meat off bone; cut meat into bite-size pieces. Discard bone. Stir meat, rice, and sweet pepper into bean mixture in slow cooker. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Cover; cook for 30 minutes more.
