Does anyone have a good red beans and rice recipe? I can't seem to find one without bacon, and I want to use red beans, not red kidney beans. I say this because I bought some canned red beans thinking it would be easy to find a recipe for them.
I always use this one from our local cajun home cookin' mecca, Treebeard's. Just ignore the bit where it tells you to add sausage. They serve it sausage-free at the restaurant as well as with sausage. You can add a dash of liquid smoke of you want, but it's not really needed.
PS: I just noticed that this also says red kidney beans, but I don't think that's accurate. I'm pretty sure at the restaurant they use small red beans, and that's what I always use at home, too. I accidentally got kidney beans last time I made it, and they were obviously the wrong beans. Way too big. Tasted fine, though.
