This is a meal I picked up while living in the south. Red beans & rice is a Cajun meal that is very simple yet rich. Its one fof my personal favorites.
What you'll need:

1 bag of red beans
1 pkg of kalbalsa sausage
5 strips of bacon
1 medium onion
Lemon pepper seasoning
Tony Chachere's creole seasoning
Rice, prepared
This is one of these recipes that requires some night before preparation.

Grab your beans and soak them in a bowl the night before. 

You want enough water so that the beans are completely submerged.

In the morning you want to drain the excess water and put the beans in your crock pot.
Start by cooking your kalbalsa and onions...
Add the sausage, onions to the beans...
Then you want cook your bacon...
Cool your bacon and crumble it in your crock pot...
Add enough water to cover your ingredients completely plus a centimeter or so more. Add some Creole and lemon pepper seasoning...
Cook on low for 4-6 hours

Also you want to make sure you prepare your rice ab0ut 45 minutes to an hour before your red beans are ready. 

Serve the bean mixture over your rice and enjoy!
