Red Beans and Rice

This recipe for Red Beans and Rice is great for Meatless Monday or any time that you don’t want to have to fuss over dinner.

Red Beans and Rice

One of the most basic of meals is rice and beans.  There are countless ways you can combine the two simply with the addition of spices, herbs, and veggies to enhance the flavors of the dish.

My version is for a simple take on Red Beans and Rice, using my Hamilton Beach Rice Cooker.  (Did you see the article How to Steam Broccoli in a Rice Cooker I wrote last week about using my new appliance?)

This recipe so ridiculously easy.  The hardest part is opening the cans of kidney beans and Ro*Tel.

ingredients for red beans and rice

To make Red Beans and Rice, put rice, kidney beans, Ro*Tel (I like it HOT! – The can with habaneros, that is.), a little tomato paste, garlic, and water.  Then plug in the rice cooker, press WHITE RICE, and let it work for you.  When it finishes, stir the rice and bean mixture.

@Lynda, thanks but the calories are double that of your recipe. I’ll just play it by ear and see what happens. Thanks, Colleen
