This recipe has been in my family for years. It is so easy to make. I was worried my kids would not like it but both of them had second bowls!

SO GOOD!! My grocery store didn't have the right sausage so I substituted with smoked sausage. I used jasmine rice bc that's what I always use for white and I went with pinto beans. Awesome! Thanks Cathy! Read More

Next time, I'll cook the rice separately and add it last. It turned out mushy when added from the beginning. Read More
