outstanding! Easy to to put together, I added a bellpepper and some pepper flakes, I like my beans a little spicy. Will make again
I've been searching for a long time for a recipe that duplicates the red beans and rice I had when living in North Carolina. This one comes pretty close. I added extra salt and some chili powder to make it a bit spicier. This was a nice, easy recipe to make, and I think it's a keeper. Thanks!
This was the perfect dish for a cold fall day! I didn't add the salt because I try to keep the sodium level down in my cooking. The salt in the sausage was plenty. I also added green peppers. It was very simple to make - I had prepared the beans the day before. DH and the kids like hot sauce, but the seasonings were fine for me. I made enough to share with my son and daughter-in-law who just had a new baby. They loved it!
