Creole Black Beans and Rice

Recipe by Tonkcats

This one of my favorite recipes. It is a crockpot recipe but I'm sure you could cook it on the stovetop also. It's pretty spicy.

A wonderfully satisfying treat for both the taste buds and to the eye! Very easy to prepare, and even the leftovers the next day were exquisitely delicious. You can make this as spicy as you dare, by altering the amount of cayenne. The spicier the better for me, so I added a bit of Tabasco to the mix for good measure. Also threw in a good-sized pinch of basil. Although the recipe calls for crock-pot cooking, I was pressed for time and prepared this on the stove-top. Next time I will try the crock pot, just so this wonderful smell will be present in the kitchen throughout the day.
