Red Beans and Rice




  • Dried red kidney beans (I used 2 16oz bags)
  • 1 big onion, diced
  • 3 sticks of celery, diced
  • 2-5 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 package of Louisiana sausage links (if you can get them, some Costco’s carry), penny sliced
  • 1-2 packages of smoked andouille sausage, penny sliced
  • Spices
    • Black pepper
    • Oregano leaves
    • Salt
    • Garlic powder
    • 1-2 bay leaves


  1.  Wash the beans
  2. Add the amount of water as suggested by the bag to cook the beans
  3. Before you start the boil add the jalapeno
  4. It will take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours for the beans to fully cook after they have cooked, add the other vegetables and the sausage
  5. Add all the seasoning and bay leaves and cook for another hour
  6. Taste it and season as you like, sorry I don’t have measurements my mom didn’t give me any so I just added until I liked the flavor


  •  Serve this over white rice or cauliflower rice
  • Freezes well
  • Add water as you like, more water = thinner red beans AND add more spices
