Red Beans and Rice

It's quick, practically cooks itself on those nights when you just don't have the time or energy, and the whole family loves it!



  • 1 Family-size box of Zataran's Red Beans and Rice (works well with Black Beans and Rice mix also) - OR- 2 regular sized boxes
  • 1 Louis Rich turkey sausage


Prepare rice mix per directions on the box. While that's cooking, chop or slice the sausage however you want it (we slice ours about 1/4 inch and then cut the slices into quarters). When the rice is done, stir in the sausage pieces and let sit for about 5 minutes. Serve it up! Goes well with biscuits on the side, too.

Optional: For added flavor, we sometimes saute the sausage in 1 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until it browns and begins to stick. This should be done just before adding to the rice, and be sure to add the pan drippings as well. Yum!
