Recipe by Victoria Caylor
"I went to a great restaurant in Savannah one summer and had red beans and rice. When I came home, I tried to figure out just how they made it. I haven't figured it out exactly, but this recipe is a pretty good imitation. Serve with hot white rice, fried potatoes, and cornbread if desired."

smoked sausage of your choice, sliced
green bell pepper, chopped
ground black pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans
dark red kidney beans
1 (15 ounce) can
light red kidney beans
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
green chile peppers, chopped
This was fabulous! I subbed in a 4-oz can of chopped green chiles for the 5 chili peppers called for and it worked wonderfully.
I should have listened to Vikki's warning about the chile peppers. It's an easy to make, attractive dish, but WOW is it hot - almost inedible - and I like spicy food. Next time, I'm omitting the heat!
Very good! I used canned green chilies and kielbasa for the sausage.
OUTSTANDING! My wife and I loved it! It was easy to make, and had that great Creole taste! It is a steady on our menu and it freezes very well for an easy after work dinner!
This was a great quick and easy recipe!!! I found the oil to be unnecessary, as the grease from the sausage was more than enough to sautee the onion...it worked great. Like others suggested, I used only 1 can each of the beans (perfect amount), in addition adding an extra can of tomatoes and used diced with jalepanos to spice it up a bit. I also substituted 4 serrano chiles for the 5 regular (it was hot, but a GOOD burn!) and used 5 cloves of garlic. Turned out I didn't have any parsley, but I don't think the dish suffered too much as a result. It was awesome served with 7 grain wild rice that I cooked in chicken broth, 1/2 tsp chile powder, 1 tsp garlic salt, and a dash of old bay. Thanks victoria!!!
To tone down the "hotness" of this dish,
eliminate the cayenne pepper and cerrano
or jalapeno peppers. Substitute with
2 cans (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
with green chilies, with liquid.
Wow!!! Great meal! My husband and I go to New Orleans several times a year and he has been telling everyone this is the best he has ever had. I used 2 cans of chunky rotel tomatoes and it was the perfect heat for us. Can't wait to make it again.
Holey-moley, this was as hot as Dante's Inferno! And I am from SOUTHERN Texas!!! I am making it again tonight, as it is VERY good, but I will be leaving out some of the heat! Whew! If you're from up north, you've been warned. ;)
