Red Beans and Rice
I’m a HUGE fan of one-pot wonders, mostly because I am NOT a fan of dishes – and while hubby does his part more often then not I’m the one on dish duty. Needless to say this week’s challenge (yes – posting on time!) for /52weeksofcooking was right up my alley. I actually made a few dishes for this “challenge”, mostly because this time of year I tend to rely heavily on my slow cooker and dutch oven. Any recipe that allows me to toss everything in and then forget about it for a bit of time is a winning recipe, and while this requires a bit of massages for the most part it really is a fix it and forget about it.
This dish was fantastic and much better than any boxed versions I’ve had – makes me wonder why I resorted to them in the first place. I topped mine with a bit of sour cream while Joe added cheese, lots and lots and lots of cheese. For lunch the next day I enjoyed it naked, adding a little water to the bowl before reheating. I’m not sure how traditional this dish is but it was insanely good and will probably join the monthly rotation!
