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.

Use the recipes you've found, without bacon, and add just a dash of liquid smoke

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.

The way I cook them is to add some oil in the bottom of my pot, add one chopped onion, a few cloves of garlic (chopped) and cook until just starting to get soft.

Pour the red beans in on top of the onions & garlic, add your water and cook for about 2-3 hrs.



The last 30 min. or so of cooking I add in some fav. hot sauce, and about 2-3Tblsp. of Tony Chacheres seasoning, but any cajun seasoning would do.



Then just stir well & serve over your fav. kind of rice.



Red beans & rice are one of my favs.

Thanks folks. I think I'll try a few of these suggestions, actually. I asked a cook at work if they use liquid smoke (we don't sell it), and he gave me a bottle of it free. Yay!
