Cajun Red Beans and Rice

This is a hearty meal that cooks up really fast. Enjoy!

Cajun Red Beans and Rice

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb sausage, casings removed (I used turkey sausage, but you whatever type you prefer.)
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 - 3 tsp Cajun seasoning, (I use 2 tsp, because my kids don’t like food too spicy)
  • 2 (15 oz) cans red beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup homemade chicken stock, or store bought
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 3-4 cups hot, cooked rice

1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage, garlic, peppers, onions and celery. Saute until until sausage is cooked through, break into bite-sized pieces as it is cooking. About 5 minutes.

2. Add seasoning, beans, stock and tomatoes. Stir well to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

3. Serve over cooked rice. I served with a tossed salad and homemade applesauce.
