Delicious Quick Red Beans and Rice ~ Let’s Go Play In The Snow!

We are bracing ourselves for a snowstorm ~ named Jonas~ on the East Coast this weekend. Before I can bundle up and head outside to have fun in  the white fluffy stuff, I have to cook dinner. This recipe for Red Beans and Rice is FAB (fast and bodacious):

red beans and rice

Jonas Red Beans and Rice

3 – 4 servings

4 cups cooked Jasmine rice (rinse rice after cooking to remove as much starch as possible)

2 thick slices yellow onion, chopped

4 tablespoons olive oil

8 slices Canadian bacon, chopped into large pieces

10 ounce can “Chili Fixin’s” Rotel seasoned diced tomatoes and green chilies

15 ounce can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed

15.5 ounce can dark kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup lower sodium chicken broth

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large skillet.  Add onion to the oil, stir and sauté until onion is transparent and lightly browned.  Add diced tomatoes and green chilies, black beans and red beans. Continue to stir over medium-low heat. Add rice, chicken broth and black pepper and stir lightly to combine.  Heat over low heat until dish is thoroughly heated.  Serve immediately with crusty French bread.

    Becky, red beans & rice is one oft favorites! Can’t wait to try this recipe. Your champagne photo reminded me of my college days at Hollins when we put our bottles of bubbly on the window ledge to chill!

      Happy Snow Storm Cindy! Hope you stay warm and cozy during the snow. Wish we lived closer to each other, we could enjoy some cold bubbly that we chill in the snow! I created a new Chex mix recipe ~ this one is made with CHEETOS! I think it is going to be yummy!
