Don't blame me for being ingnorant, I was born in California. I've never had red beans and rice before. They're not kidney beans, right? I've always assumed that it's a spicy combination, kinda cajun flavors? I've always been curious to try, just never really had the opportunity.

Probably one of my all time favorite foods! Good job. I like to add some shredded cheese on top. A piece of avocado or banana on the side. And some tabasco sauce to kick it up.

I learned about red beans and rice when I lived in Texas for a few years. I didn't measure anything but I'll give approximate measures.

Soak 1# of red beans overnight.
Small dice 1 cup each of celery, green pepper, and onion.
Melt 2 Tbs. butter in dutch oven then add celery pepper onion and saute over medium heat till tender.
Add 2 cloves garlic diced and 1 Tbs tomato paste. Cook another minute while stirring.
Add strained red beans.
Cover with water.
Add 2 smoked pork hocks, 2 bay leaves, 1Tbs paprika, 1/4tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1tsp black pepper, 1/2tsp chipotle chile powder.
Bring to boil then simmer until beans are tender. It's going to take several hours.

Do not salt yet. The andoullie is going to add lots of salt.

The main flavor profile is going to come from the andoullie sausage. I just used a package from the market and it was surprisingly good. It's pre cooked so I slice and add about an hour before end. Just estimate.

Actually tasted like what I remembered from Texas.

I love red beans and rice! I would love that bowl right now. When I go to New Orleans I always get my fill!

Does it taste similar to the red bean and rice from Popeye's or is it even better?

I like the popeye's version but since I am not an expert of RB and rice you can clue me in.

Oh my my my, yes I would love to have some of this. Recipe copied and I will be cooking this soon! The fam love this but of course it has always been easier to just buy it from Popeye's so now I can do it myself. Thanks man! This is going to be an awesome winter meal!

Never had Popeye's so can't compare.
The andoullie is key to get the flavor profile.
Don't salt until the andoullie has been awhile because it adds a lot of salt.

Thanks, I will give it a try.

Many like to use canned beans but I think that is a total cop out.

Making it from scratch is the only way I will ever make beans.

Looks great! Pretty much the same recipe as I use, but I do add some cumin.
