Think red beans are best slow and on low? You’re not alone. If Blue Runner can teach you anything though, it’s that there are many ways to enjoy red beans. Out of the can always works. There’s a lot to be said for our Instant Pot® recipe, too. But if you have the time, we suggest that you give this slow cooker recipe a try. Our customers tell us they like to cream up their beans by adding Blue Runner® Creole Style Canned Red Beans to the mix as this recipe suggests. You can choose between several kinds – Original, New Orleans Spicy, Creole Mirepoix, and no salt. Give it a try, then let us know what you think. Mondays just got better…and easier.
