I am looking for a recipe for red beans and rice that is comparable to Popeye's Red Beans and Rice.

I know this may be strange, but have you tried Zatarains? The boxed kind...my DH's Godfather is from just North of New Orleans, and will only make Jambalaya from a box with Zatarains because it is as close to authentic as you can get!
If you want to cook dry red beans then use the Zatarain's red bean seasoning mix.
This is the way PopEye's make theirs, but it sure
seems a shame as good Red Beans and Rice
are so easy to make from scratch.
Popeye's Red Beans and Rice
2 c Uncle ben's long grain rice (cooked)
1 - 16 oz. can Red chili beans in chili gravy
1 t Chili powder
1/4 ts Cumin
Dash garlic salt
In saucepan, heat beans without letting them boil.
Stir in chili powder, cumin and garlic salt. When
piping hot, add warm rice and gently mix.
Hope this turns out to be what you want.
All the Best,
Julia in Orlando, FL
