Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
October 14, 2003

Awesome recipe! Very authentic, and I'm from the south. I decreased the oil to 2 Tbl. to cut down on the fat, decreased the cayenne pepper to 1/4 tsp. (just personal preference), and used the "Simple Cajun Seasoning" recipe found on this site. I cooked everything with the lid on for the first hour to keep the water from evaporating, then cooked 1 more hour with the lid off (2 hours total was perfect). I used turkey smoked sausage to, again, cut down on the fat (added the last 30 minutes of cooking). After cooking, I added 1 1/2 tsp. salt. The next time I made this, I was half asleep and used pinto beans when I should have used red beans - still came out great! Thanks so much for the recipe!
