Betty demonstrates how to make a zesty dish from the Deep South, Cajun Red Beans and Rice. This recipe makes a large amount, and it can be used as the main course of a meal. It is composed of a sauce made from red beans, vegetables, and spices, and it is served over a hot bed of white rice. Add a wedge of hot, tasty cornbread, and it tastes wonderful!

Cajun Red Beans and Rice

(2) 15.5 oz. cans red beans, undrained (You may use pinto beans, kidney beans, chili beans—but no beans that have been already flavored with spices.)
½ stick butter or margarine, melted
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
½ cup sliced green onion
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 oz. diced cooked ham (I used Hormel canned smoked ham, but you may use leftover ham chunks.)
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
¾ teaspoon hot sauce (Tabasco or any type of hot pepper sauce may be used.)
1 cup water
2 cups hot, cooked white long-grain rice

Saute 1 cup chopped celery, 1 cup chopped onion, ½ cup sliced green onion, and ½ cup chopped green pepper in ½ stick melted butter or margarine until tender. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic, 2 cans of red beans, 5 oz. diced cooked ham, ¼ teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, ¾ teaspoon hot sauce, and 1 cup water. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. While the red bean sauce is cooking, prepare your white rice. When ready to serve, arrange 2 cups of hot white rice on a large serving dish. Spoon bean mixture over the top, and serve immediately. If you like red beans and rice, this is a very flavorful version that you are sure to enjoy!
