Real Cajun Beans and Rice

Joann Marsh


I was given this recipe in 1977 from a dear friend Pat K. I have revised it over the years to suit my families palate. I hope that you enjoy this as much as we have over the last 34 years. I also serve Corn Bread with this,and that's a new revision too,(more later on that) plus you must always serve it over rice. Juice and all. Enjoy. :-)

Cook on low until the beans are cooked to tender, approx. 1 hour and 45 min. Now cook your white rice. and make your corn muffins or bread.
