Red Beans and Rice

This is so easy to make, and so good, I am going to share it with you.  It's Joan's recipe for Red Beans and Rice:

Red Beans & Rice

2 c dried red beans plus 1 T baking soda

1 chopped onion

3 cloves of garlic

1 can diced tomatoes

1 t cumin

2 t salt

2 T Joan’s chili powder or add extra cayenne for store bought

32 oZ chicken or vegetable stock

¼ c fresh cilantro

2 c dried red beans soaked overnight with 1 T baking soda

Rinse and drain the next morning. Saute onions & garlic till they begin
to sweat. Add tomatoes and spices and cook down a bit. Place beans and tomato mixture to crock pot. Cook 7 hours on low.

Saute Andouille sausage and set aside to stir in at last minute. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
