READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Loretta in Louisiana

This is a good comfort food and is better 2 or 3 days later. Serve over a bed of rice and some good garlic bread.

Excellent Red Beans and Rice. I've never tried this before but the 2 adults that I made this for that have said this was excellent. I let mine simmer longer but other than that didn't change a thing except to serve with cornbread instead of garlic bread. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 07
