Red Beans and Rice Mix

Red Beans and Rice Mix

"Since there's food galore during the holidays themselves, I like giving this zippy mix as an after-Christmas present instead. I just slip the containers of seasoning, beans and rice into a decorative paper bag. A recipe card completes the package."

To prepare red beans and rice: Place beans in a Dutch oven or soup kettle; add water to cover by 2 in. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour.

Wonderful dish!I did add celery and onion. I cooked my rice in low sodium chicken broth for added flavor. thanks

This is a terrific idea! I have been doing this kind of thing for years as gifts for my co-workers and friends. I usually starting thinking of the coming year’s idea around August or September...

Thanks for the idea!

I used this as just a recipe and it was great! Wonderful flavors...all the spices worked well together! Now I have no problem bundling these up for Christmas gifts! Thanks!

What a great gift idea! When cooking for my family, I use andouille sausage instead of ham and smoked sausage. This has so much flavor, and the leftovers reheat well. I serve it with cornbrea...

I fixed this as an Ode to Dave Ramsey. Problem is...I still don't like any type of sausage.

So delicious! I like to add fresh chopped carrot, celery, onion and a little potato.
