Smoked Sausage and Red Beans


Good ole red beans and sausage with rice. I put lots of garlic in it, which makes it tasty. I take it to my bingo crowd, and they love it! I usually don't measure, so I decided to write it down while I was making it. This is medium on the heat but make it as hot as you like!
