This is a slow cooker recipe. I first made it for a work potluck in '99 and it was a big hit. It's so good on a cold day. Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 lb
beef smoked sausage, cut in 1" chunks
3 15oz can(s)
black beans, drained
1/2 c
yellow onion, chopped
1/2 c
celery, chopped
4-5 clove
garlic, crushed
2 tsp
thyme, dried
1 1/2 tsp
oregano, dried
1 1/2 tsp
black pepper
1/4 tsp
red pepper flakes or a few dashes of hot pepper sauce
1
chicken bouillon cube
5
bay leaves, dried
1 can(s)
diced tomatoes
hot cooked white or brown rice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown sliced sausage in a skillet. Drain on towels to remove excess fat.
2
Put all of the ingredients, except rice, into a large slow cooker.
3
Cover and Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve over hot cooked white or brown rice. I say this serves 10 or more per recommended servings but a family of 5-6 could easily finish this off if eating large portions.
