    Thick, rich and a nice little kick. These were were a hit served with fresh cornbread, green onions and recipe #275672. I used a spicy sausage and red bell pepper. Something I would make again.

    First time making a Southern like this, the recipe was easy to put together and took no time at all. It tasted Fantastic and a new house favorite.

    Quick meal. I loved how all the ingredients were pantry staples. The favors were great. No left overs. I will make this again on a busy night

    This was outstanding. I'll definitely add this to our dinner rotation as it was a big hit with my husband and oldest son. I did make some modifications to cut the calories and fat. I used 1lb of ground turkey sausage and reduced the oil to 1tbs. I only had a small can of diced tomatoes, but it worked out beautifully anyway. I omitted the dried red pepper flakes as we have lots of small children. When I put my version through a recipe analyzer a one cup serving without rice clocked in at 140 calories.

    I won't have to look at any of the other red beans and rice recipes because this is a WINNER! I made your creole seasoning also. The only change I made to the recipe was I added a 1/2 tsp of the red pepper flakes. This reheats well and the flavor was even better the next day! Thanks!
