There’s not much better than a warm, hearty meal after a long, hard day at work. Slow cookers are a great way make a one-dish meal.
Red beans and rice is a great, healthy, hearty meal that will keep you filled up, and the leftovers can be used in a number of ways. I often add turkey kielbasa to mine on occasion. I use the leftovers to make quesadillas.
If you’re in a hurry, Vigo offers wonderful bagged red beans and rice.
