All-Day Red Beans & Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family loves New Orleans-style cooking, so I make this authentic dish often. Being a busy workingwoman, I appreciate how simple it is. And its smoky ham flavor is scrumptious. —Celinda Dahlgren, Napa CA

The best ever

This was pretty good! Jimmy said that kielbasa would really be good. I said next time I made it - and there will be a next time - I would make a few more kicks because I like it spicier!!

Good, but needs more flavoring. The hamhocks had less than a TBS of real 'meat'; mostly just fat and gristle. Perhaps a hambone would work better. My husband and I never add extra salt to our food, but we both had to add both salt and pepper to this. Hearty and satisfying so worth trying again!

This came out really, really well.

We loved this recipe! It is so easy to make and very tasty. I did not have a fresh tomato so I used can diced tomatoe without the juice. We did add hot sauce to spice it up some. This was even better for leftovers the next day. This is a must to try!!
