  • Red Beans and Rice or Blackeyed Peas
    Good: 4 qt. stockpot with cover
    Cook all day
    Ingredients:
    2 quarts water
    1 Bag Red Kidney Beans
    1/2 pound of Louisiana Smoked Sausage
    1 small small picnic ham
    garlic cloves (I use 6)
    2 large yellow onion chopped coarse
    2 Bay leaves whole
    1 tbls. Parsely
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. black Pepper
    1 tsp. liquid smoke (if you can find it in the grocery store)
    What you have to do:
    Fill pot with 2 quarts of water and and beans/peas put over high heat. Chop onion and garlic and put into pot along with 2-3 Bay leaves. Stir. When the pot boils, reduce heat to low. Stir and cover, stirring occasionally. (add water if you feel the mixture is getting too thick - but do it slowly).
    Chop 1/2 pound of Louisiana Smoked Sausage (I use smoked kielbasa) in coins and chop the ham in to squares. Stir the sausage and ham into beans. Stir beans it will get thick and oh

  • I used canned black eye peas if I'm shrt on time, I add cooked bacon, onions ( cook them together) and mix into rice. I also add finely chopped jalapeƱos but a lot of people don't like them. Add salt to taste

  • Oops!! Oh so YUMMY!
    I make this every year for new years and the recipe for Red Beans and Rice EVERY MONDAY!
    My husband is from Lousiana and this recipe I have been using for 17 years and it NEVER gets old :)

  • I use dried beans - they are so much better! Soak overnight. I start mine around lunchtime to be ready for supper. Add onion and green pepper while cooking. I don't use a recipe, it's just a taste thing. Serve over cornbread.
