1 sweet onion, diced
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 pound Andouille sausage

1. Grab your canned beans and rinse them - being sure to remove any debris. Just set aside the seasoning packet for now.
2. Pour your rinsed beans in the slow cooker with the bell pepper, onion, chicken broth, and water.
3. Cook on high for 5 hours.
4. Slice the sausage into thin pieces and fry up in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned on both sides. It should take about 5 minutes
5. Add your sausage and tomatoes to the slow cooker, along with the packet of Cajun seasoning. Stir well.
6. Cook for another hour
