New Orleans Red Beans And Rice
"This authentic New Orleans Red Beans and Rice recipe has all of the classic Cajun flavors that you know and love from the old-fashioned dish. Andouille sausage and a smoked ham hock give the meal rich, satisfying flavor. Serve each bowl with fluffy white rice, a dash of hot sauce, and plenty of cornbread to soak up the extra broth! You won't believe how thick, zesty and delicious this New Orleans Red Beans and Rice recipe tastes! The traditional Louisiana Creole dish was typically prepared on Mondays, using a combination of red beans, vegetables (such as bell pepper, onion and celery), spices, and pork bones leftover from Sunday's supper. Since ham was a classic Sunday meal and Monday was wash day, the pot of beans and bones could simmer on the stovetop while the women were busy scrubbing clothes."
