Very good. My Dh was, for some unknown reason, prepared to not like it but ended up being dissapointed there were no leftovers for lunch. I only added 1 can of beans and thought it needed a little extra salt and pepper once the rice was added to each plate. I will make this again.

Enjoyed this recipe. Couple small changes was I used pork (vs turkey) kielbasa & increased portion 3-4 oz. I reduced the kidney beans about 1/2 can & I found it a perfect balance for us. It didn't say what kind of vinegar so I used white wine vinegar. Great flavours, thanks for sharing.

I used S&W Red Beans Louisiana Style. This was such a tasty and EASY recipe that was flavorful without being spicy. My whole family gave this 5 stars!
