Recipe by mandabears

This is my version of Popeye's Red Beans and Rice. It is the final result after many disastrous attempts, thank goodness for a husband with a cast iron stomach.

The two most important items in this great recipe is to use Camellia Brand dry red beans soaked over night, cooked in a crock pot and for the smoked flavor, SMOKED PAPRICA instead of Liquid Smoke. Also add bay leaf and for the touch of heat a small amount of Crystal Hot Sauce which is more flavorful and less peppery than Tobasco Sauce. Thats my humble cajun opinion
