A Popeye's is new in our town and I find every excuse to go get the rice and beans! So I found this recipe and immediately set out to make it. Well, I didn't have a 30 oz can of kidney beans, but I did have 15 1/2 oz cans of pink and black beans. Without delay I made the recipe with the pink and black; and I used smokey paprika because that is what I had. I LOVED THEM!!! I have since prepared them with kidney and used different pepper and fat combinations. My favorite is the pink/black bean combo, smokey paprika and the recipe exactly as written. Thank you so much!!!
yum!! I loved this....I will make again and again. very satisfying. Thanks for sharing Stacky5!!!
I love Popeye's Red Beans and Rice so I thought I would give this recipe a try. It was very good, easy to make, and inexpensive. I will definitely make this one again. Thanks for posting.
Very very very good! Very easy and best of all CHEAP to make! I made the beans from dry, not canned, and made this in the crockpot. Thanks for this great recipe!
That is no where near Popeye' Red Bean's recipe. You left out a few ingredients.
Taste was great! Whole family knocked the whole serving down and some. Good stuff.

NOT even close, my friends. I am a very experienced cook and an experienced PRB&R eater, and can tell you: the result of this recipe is not what you're seeking. Too peppery, not "smokY" enough, inadequate mouthfeel.
Tried this tonight... it was perfect! So yummy and very close to the original.
