I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends, and of course great food!
Now you’re in need of a break from all the holiday cooking, but still craving something easy, warm, and comforting? This can of Creole Cream style red beans is a favorite of mine. When I used to do a lot of traveling this goodness in a can always came with me along with a bottle of Crystal hot sauce and pre-cooked Boiled Cajun Rice for a quick meal away from home.
In a large saucepan sauté 1 cup of trinity with 1 tablespoon butter and a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil until soft.
Add 2 garlic cloves, minced & saute until fragrant
Add 1/2 to a pound sliced smoked sausage
Open can, add to pan and just add water or broth to desired consistency and mix thoroughly. Heat through and serve over Cajun boiled rice. Top with sliced green onions and hot sauce.
Tip: For a little extra zing, I like to add a few dashes of Tabasco pepper vinegar.
