Red Beans in the Crock Pot

  1. Combine first eight ingredients in your slow cooker, adding the water last, and cook on High for four hours. Do not lift lid - it gets tempting around the second-third hour. Resist!
  2. Use pot holders to remove crockery inner liner and drain solids in colander over sink.
  3. Return beans to liner and liner to slow cooker, reducing heat to low.
  4. Drizzle molasses over beans. Add tomatoes. If you are using fresh tomatoes, you will need to add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of tomato juice or other liquid - I used the petite diced tomatoes in a can.
  5. Add ham and bacon drippings. If you do not have any reserved drippings, add 2-3 slices of cooked bacon, chopped. Sprinkle cajun seasoning over all and mix with a large wooden spoon.
  6. Put the lid on and let the flavors meld. The beans are done, this time is to put it all together. Ready to go after 2 hours on low, perfect after 4 hours.
