The husband and I have been in a dinner rut for the last few weeks. I feel like we make the same things over and over again. I have been bored with our normal dinner routine. This week we made something that I had never made before: spicy red beans & rice. The best part? It took less than 10 minutes to make from start to finish.
SPICY RED BEANS & RICE
Dinner is a tough topic, especially if you have picky eaters in your household. We decided to go with a homemade version of side dish we have had while dining out dozens of times. We increased the ingredients to make a dish worthy of a great dinner. This is what I did:
Step 1: I started boiling water to make 2 cups of instant rice.
Step 2: I opened two cans of Bush’s Best New Orleans Style Red Beans.
Step 3: I mixed 1/2 a teaspoon of ground chipotle pepper into the beans.
Step 4: I mixed 1/2 a teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper into the beans.
Step 5: Heat the beans until warm all the way through. Serve with white rice and andouille sausage (optional).
