RecipeThere’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.
