Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Throw all of this into a Dutch oven or stock pot.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer until it smells so good you can't stand it! (At least one hour.).
  4. Serve over hot cooked rice. I prefer medium grain rice for texture.

This was pretty good but a little too soupy so I would use less broth next time. Thanks!!

This is one of the best beans & rice recipes I've tried! I made just a few small changes: cut it in half; omitted the onion but poured the whole mixture into a pan I sauteed a garlic clove in w/ olive oil, and added about 2 1/2 tablespoons of louisiana hot sauce. I like spicy :-D I put it with Minute Rice so it was super easy. This IS a keeper! Thanks for sharing it.

WOW!! What a fantastic blend of flavors! I cut this in half since it was just for 2 of us, but now wish we had some leftovers for another meal. It isn't the prettiest dish, but it certainly makes up for it with the taste. I served it over a wild/brown rice blend and used turkey sausage. MERP'd for My 3 Chefs. Excellent! Thanks for sharing JimnLyss.
