Red Beans & Rice Recipe

I love Red Beans & Rice but I've only had the prepackaged kind. I'd like to try my hand at making it from scratch sometime. Does anyone have a good recipe?

Here's the one I have. It's out of Paul Prudhomme's "Louisiana Kitchen"

Red Beans and Rice with Ham Hocks and Andouille Sausage
Yields: 6 servings

1 # dry red kidney beans
water to cover the beans
6 large ham hocks (3 ½ - 4 #)
16 c water, in all
2 ½ c finely chopped celery
2 c finely chopped onions
2 c finely chopped green bell peppers
For the seasoning mix:
5 bay leaves
2 t white pepper
2 t thyme
1 ½ t oregano
1 t cayenne
½ t black pepper
1 T Tabasco
1 # andouille sausage (or kielbasa), cut diagonally into ¼ # slices
4 ½ c cooked rice

Cover the beans with water 2” over the top of the beans. Let stand overnight. Drain just before cooking. Place the ham hocks, 10 c of water, the celery, onions, bell peppers, bay leaves, and seasonings in a 5 ½ qt soup pot, stir well. Cover and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until meat if fork tender, about an hour, stirring occasionally. Remove ham hocks from the pan and set aside. Add the drained beans and 4 c of water, bring to a boil, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the remaining 2 c of water and simmer 30 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the andouille and continue simmering until the beans start breaking up, about 35 minutes, scraping pan bottom fairly often. Add the ham hocks and simmer another 10 minutes. To serve, mound some rice on a shallow bowl. Place a ham hock and a couple pieces of andouille in the bowl, and surround with beans.

Here is the crockpot version from Mable Hoffman's cookbook, "Crockery Cookery." My family loves this recipe.

Red Beans and Rice

1 lb. smoked Polish sausage, cut into ½ slices
2 (15 oz.) cans of small red beans
1 green or yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped
1 (15 oz.) can peeled diced tomatoes in juice
1 small red onion, chopped
Cooked rice

In slow cooker, combine sausage beans, bell pepper, chopped jalapeno chile, tomatoes, and onion. Cover and cook on low 5 ½ - 6 hours. Meanwhile, when near done cook rice. Spoon cooked rice into individual bowls or large serving dish. Top with bean mixture.

Makes 4-6 servings.

Hey, I have that same cookbook! I've only made a few things out of it, though. I'm not big on using a crockpot to cook with.
