Thank you so much! I'm always looking for new ways to use kidney beans, which I love but have so few uses for! This was wonderful! I didn't have cajun seasoning, so I made up my own from things I had in my cabinet such as seasoned salt, parsley, granulated garlic, white pepper, chili powder, and paprika. I *love* this recipe! This is going to be a wonderful, flavorful, fast and easy addition to our weeknights!
We really enjoyed this recipe for dinner last night. I did drain my beans and used a large can of diced tomatoes. It was just spicy enough and very nice for a cold rainy evening. I'll be making this one over and over. Thanks for sharing!
This was fabulous! I am also in the "why didn't I try this earlier" club? I used to prepare the red beans and rice mix from the box, but this is so much tastier and just as fast! Our only complaint is that it was a little soupy. I had drained one can of beans in anticipation of this but it was still too watery for us. Next time I will drain both cans of beans and just use the juice from the tomatoes only. Thanks so much for posting PanNan!
This is delicious! We don't use any other red beans & rice recipe.
This is good! For a slightly different taste I've used 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce and a couple of drops of Tabasco when I am out of cajun seasoning.
This recipe was very easy to make. I cheated and used regular beef sausage instead of turkey -- I figured all the veggies made up for the extra fat. ;-) Definitely a repeat. Try serving with Sweet Cornbread (Sweet Cornbread) for a special treat.
Easy, healthy, economical. I used kidney beans and cooked quite a lot longer. Good with couscous too.
Made this just as posted and my whole family loved it. Perfect amount of heat and the smoked turkey sausage is a healthy plus.
We loved this and you are right, this is a fantastic weeknight dinner dish. I used an uncased pound of chicken sausage and fried it up seperately and then added it to the vegetable mix. I also used brown rice, but otherwise made as directed. Made for ZWT #9.
I just realized that I have never reviewed this recipe, though I have made it and passed it on many times. I usually make it meatless and it is just fantastic. I do drain and rinse my red beans. SUPER recipe. Thanks, PanNan!!
