  • 1 lbs. Red Kidney Beans dried
  • 2 lbs. Smoked Turkey Wings
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 6-8 cups Water or Chicken Stock
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Sweet or Yellow Onion (medium) diced
  • 2 tsp Tony's Creole Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Slap Ya Mama
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Black Pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Once hot cook the minced garlic and diced onion for a minute or two.

  2. Add the Tony's Creole Seasoning and onion powder to the garlic and onions, stir well, and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.

  3. Turn your crockpot on high. (You can slow cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low for 8-9 hours)

  4. Add your smoked turkey wings to the pot first. Then add the garlic and onion mixture on top of the turkey wings.

  5. Gently empty the dried red kidney beans to the crockpot.

  6. Pour your cups of water and/or chicken broth over the contents already in the pot. (I like to use a mix of half water half chicken broth. Either of them works!)

  7. Add the Slap Ya Mama seasoning and bay leaves. Stir everything together to evenly distribute the seasoning in the food mixture.

  8. Cover the crockpot and let it cook.

  9. Half way through the cook time take the smoked turkey off of the bones, stir the ingredients together well, and cover again.

  10. Adjust your spicy level by adding black pepper, hot sauce, and/or more Tony's or Slap Ya Mama to the beans. Enjoy!
