"With red kidney beans, rice, cheese and plenty of spices, this recipe makes a nice version of a classic dish. It can be served as a main dish, and is quite good when accompanied by a salad and some crusty bread." — Melissa Cazun

My husband is a big fan or red beans and rice and loved this dish. It's not quite my style, but I still thought it was good. The servings seemed huge, so I only made half the recipe and it was plenty. I also think I used more red pepper flakes and less paprika.
This dish does not remotely resemble "classic" red beans and rice.
I have used this recipe for several potlucks by just adding more rice. I have also cut up kielbasi into bite size pieces instead of ground meat for variety. I find this recipe very good and my bowl is empty before the end of the a potluck dinner!
This is so simple yet so absolutely delicious. The reason why I love to eat chile! Enjoy with a glass of Rioja!
This is the absolute worst recipe i have ever tired.
Pretty good taste but I wasn't sure I understood the recipe - I used an ENTIRE 14 oz box of Sucess rice and thought that was too much. 3 bags would have been plenty. I also used only 8 oz of cheddar due to the fat factor. I really couldn't taste the beef in this at all - I don't know whether to add more beef or leave it out altogether next time. At any rate, this was quickly consumed by my teenaged boy.
Very good! We had it this evening and was absolutely delicious!
this was sooooo good. wow. thanks so much for the recipe. I only changed it up a bit, but only because of necessity (this was all I had): i used half ground beef and half kielbasa, and I used half red kidney beans and half white kidney beans. Oh, and I omitted the cheese, because I don't have any. I don't think it would need cheese. absolutely delicious!!
