When I realized Mardi Gras was coming up this weekend, I started craving New Orleans Red Beans and Rice, the iconic Creole dish that I first tasted when I went to New Orleans about 15 years ago. Then I thought about making my long-time favorite Slow Cooker Louisiana-Style Red Beans and Rice which I’d already featured on this site. That made me wonder how many other food bloggers have made red beans and rice in the slow cooker.
