Red Beans and Rice is all cooked up in one big pot. This mouthwatering combination of onions, celery, Sausage, red beans, rice and a perfect blend of spices is a super hearty flavor packed meal.
Start by heating a little vegetable oil in the pot over medium heat. Add the onion, green pepper, celery and sausage. Cook until the onions soften and the sausage lightly browns. This will take several minutes so stir frequently so nothing gets too crispy on the bottom.
