How to Make Red Beans and Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Sort through the beans and discarded any that do not look good. Rinse the beans and place in a soup pot, cover with water. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, turn the burner off, place a lid on the pot and let them soak for 1 hour.
  2. Brown the sliced andouille sausage, add the onions, green pepper and celery. Saute until soft.

    Bring to a boil, simmer for 2 to 3 hours, stirring often.
  4. When the beans are done, serve over rice with the chopped green onions on the top as garnish.

    Add tabassco to your serving if you like it spicy.
