      Simmer the bean mixture for 45 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir every 10 mins or so and mash the light red beans with the back of a wooden spoon (you don't have to mash them all, just be sure to give those beans a good mashing!).

      After 45 mins remove from the heat and add the cooled cooked rice and the additional 1/2 can of beans mixture.
    7. 7
      Stir it all together until the rice is warmed through again and serve.

      This cooked way quicker than 45 mins so watch it closely. Very easy and good. I don't always have money for the sausage so this is super budget friendly! I made mine without the red pepper flakes and only 2 t. of the black pepper and it was still too spicy for my little kids, so adjust the spice if you have little ones.
