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.
