My husband is from south Louisiana and I've had to learn to cook Cajun/Creole recipes. This is our quick take on red beans & rice.

This is delicious! Great flavor with a mild spicy after taste. Made as written with the exception of adding 1 medium diced onion and only 1/4 tsp. white pepper. In the rice I used garlic powder. All together easy and quick filling meal. *Made for Spring 2009 PAC* Thanks!
