You know those meals that taste even better as leftovers? Well, we've got one of them for you right here with this Simple Red Beans and Rice recipe. You've gotta give this classic recipe a try!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound smoked sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (16-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Warm cooked rice
What To Do:
  1. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and next 3 ingredients, and sauté 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add beans and next 6 ingredients.

  2. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Serve over rice.


Leftovers are even better the next day, especially because you don't have to start from scratch! To reheat this one-dish meal, microwave at MEDIUM (50 percent power) 3 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
