Creole Sausage with Rice and Beans

creole sausage and beans
This is another recipe from the Southern Living Slow-Cooker cookbook. I really liked it, although the rice did get a little mushy. Using the turkey sausage kept it pretty healthy and it has been great to have on hand for lunches (I've been putting some of it in heated tortillas).

Ingredients:
1 (16 oz) package smoked sausage, sliced (I used turkey sausage)
2 (10 oz) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
3 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 t Creole seasoning
1 1/2 c uncooked long-grain rice
2 (15 oz) cans red beans, rinsed and drained

Directions:
*Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat 5 min. or until browned; drain. Place sausage in a 4-quart slow cooker; stir in tomatoes and next 3 ingredients.
*Cover and cook on LOW 3 1/2 hours. Stir in beans. Cover and cook on HIGH 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. (I put it all in together and it took about 4 1/2 hours for the rice to be cooked)
