Yum! Got some good ol' red beans and rice on the stove today! This is a favorite of my kiddies and hubby. I never have to fight anyone to eat beans and rice. Sometimes it's white beans, red beans, pintos, field peas... either way beans always goes over well in this house.
For red beans and rice you simply need a pound of dry beans, a large yellow onion, salt, pepper, water, and a pound of Hillshire Farm smoked sausage (in the yellow packaging!). It's the simplest of the simple recipes, and it hardly takes any prep time. You can also do this in the crock pot making it a great busy person's meal.
I was going to make a shrimp and sausage jambalaya this week, but Mr. Cooker decided to cook that yesterday while I worked soooo... it's on the back burner (snicker) until next week.
